During the last decade the growth and prominence given to fraternal and ben- 
eficiary societies has been one of the remarkable features in the history of all 
civilized countries, and especially in the United States. In this boasted age of pro- 
gress the accumulation of large fortunes by individuals and centralization of wealth 
in great cities has had a tendency to distract society and impose grievous burdens 
on the masses. Whilst monopolies have been built, the beneficent effects of 
cooperation have been learned. These great benevolent organizations have been 
the educators, refuge and protection to the toiling millions in the middle walks of 
life. It seems to be an inevitable result that, wherever the highest enlightenment 
is attained, there these fraternal and co-operative societies are the most prosperous 
and have become leading factors of the body politic. Their popularity is such 
that it is hard to find a leading citizen but what holds a membership in one or 
more of these organizations. 

Even woman has entered into the spirit of ihe age, and demands at the hands of 
her brother a right to enter the portals of the lodge room, and been admitted with 
equal rights and privileges. It is patent to all, that the leading citizens in every 
community, and even the men who are called to preside as governors, legislators, 
and councilmen, in national and state affairs, are enthusiastic members of these 
great benevolent organizations, and meet on a common level the hardy sons of toil 
in the lodge room. We have deemed it an enterprise in keeping with these 
growing humanitarian Societies, to issue an Illustrated Fraternal Directory, con- 
taining fine engravings and short sketches of over loo prominent fraternal society 
men, and a directory of the leading fraternal and beneficiary societies of the Pacific 
Coast. We have received material and cordial aid and encouragement from a 
number of leading citizens and executive officers of different grand bodies, to whom 
we are indebted for much of the valuable information we are enabled to give our 
patrons. To the Fraternal World, whose great benevolent heart is always ready 
with the mantle of charity to cover the mistakes and short-comings of its fellow 
creatures, we submit this volume, hoping to receive their approval and patronage:

First M. W. Grand Master of California. 

Col. Stevenson, venerable and distinguished brother, was elected the first 
Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of California, April 17th, 1850. During a 
•long and useful life he has justly earned the title of being the father and found- 
er of Freemasonry on the Pacific Coast. 

His masonic career commenced in Phoenix Lodge, No. 40, New York, in 
1821, and he was elected Senior Warden of his lodge, December, 22, 1882. "He 
has the honor of having been the Master of the only lodge in the City of Xew 

York that had courage to hold regular meetings and perform the Masonic work 
during that unreasonable panic and fanatical craze." 

He received the Eoyal Arch degree of Masonry in Phoenix Chapter, New 
York city, in 1832, and was elected King. The celebrated " Stevenson's Reg- 
iment" was recruited by him, under authority to sail around the Horn and 
serve in California. He commenced this work at the adjournment of the Leg- 
islature of New York, of which he was a member. As a lawyer, military man. 
and civilian he has filled exalted poistions, and during a long and arduous 
career in serving his country and humanity he has led an honest and blame- 
less life. Our esteemed brother is nearly ninety years old, and until a recent 
accident was performing the active duties of life. As men and Masons we 
can point with pride to such men as our countrymen and fathers.

has a vigorous, elastic step, and capability in the active duties of life that has 
been polished by a life's work in Masonry. He lias held various offices of trust

Grand Secretary of Grand Chapter R. A. M., and Grand Recorder of K. T. aud S. M. 

of California. 

There is no man on the Pacific Coast more prominent in the higher degrees 
of Masonry than Judge Caswell. His genial nature, broad experience, and 
high literary attainments make him a fit representative of these eminent or- 
ders. His former occupation aud profession, as editor, lawyer, and judge 
were filled with distinction, credit, and ability. 

His masonic life commenced in Nevada City in 1850. He was exalted to the 
Royal Arch degree, January, 1855 ; created Knight Templar, April 5, 1855 ; 
crowned an active thirty-third degree member of Supreme Council for South- 
ern Jurisdiction in the city of Baltimore, May, 1870 ; and in October, 1882, was 
made Grand Minister of State of the Supreme Council, 33d degree Inspector 
Grand, for the Southern Jurisdiction of the United States. 

He was Master of Nevada Lodge, No. 13, for four years ; High Priest of Ne- 
vada Chapter, No. 6, for nine years ; Commander of Nevada Commandery, No. 
6, for 3 years ; elected Grand High Priest in 1858, Grand Commander in 1873, 
and Grand Secretary of the Grand Chapter and Grand Recorder of the Grand 
Commandery of California in 1878, which position he still occupies. At the 
recent session of the Supreme Council of 33d degree of A, & A. S. R., Southern

ter of State of that body.

The following sketch is from the Masouic Record : He was raised a Mas- 
ter Mason in St. Paul's Lodge, No. 124. in Auburn, N. Y., December, 1848, exalt- 
ed to the Royal Arch degree in David's Chapter, No. 34, of the same place, 
August, 183'5, and kniglited in Salem Town Oommaudery, No. 16, at Auburn, 
in March, 18.59. He came to California in 1849, and lias taken an active part in 
establisliinsf and advancing Masonry on the Pacific Coast. He served asJMas- 
ter of Golden Gate Lodge, No. HO, in San Francisco, High Priest of California 

Chapter No. 5, Commander of California Commandery, No. 1, and has held the 
office of Grand Treasurer of the Grand Chapter of Royal Arch Masons of the 
State of California since April, 1874. He tilled the honorable and responsible 
position of Grand Commander of the Grand Commandery of California in 
1876-'77 and '78. He was elected Secretary of the Triennial Committee in 1878 
Mr. Graves seems to have inherited in some degree his love of Masonry, as his 
father, who died in San Francisco in 1880, had been a valiant Sir Knight over 
tifty years, and at the time of his death was the oldest Mason on the Coast. 

Mr. Graves has an abiding faith in the future of the Order, is frank and 
manly in bearing, believes that all Masons are brothers that owe each other 
assistance and sympathy, and his genial nature and personal character exemp- 
lify in the highest degree the noble and magnanimous principles of Masonry.

Past Grand Master. 

Senator Taylor has acliieved greatness by liis own exertions. Nature fash- 
ioned him in a mould of attractiveness, and his great intellect and command- 
ing form stamp him as a leader. Commencing in early life, at the age of four- 
teen years, he has struggled on and placed himself in the front rank as an 
Httorney-at-lavv, statesman and citizen. At the earnest solicitation of the bet- 

ter element of society, without regard to party, he served as District Attorney 
of Shasta County 11 years. As Senator from the 2-lth District he gained a high 
reputation, and was a prominent candidate for Governor. 

He served two terms as Most Worshipful Grand Master of Free and Accept- 
ed Masons witli signal ability, and has been advanced to the thirty-third de- 
gree in Scottish Eite Masonry, and is also a Knight Templar. 

He has been a conspicuous factor in building up the A. O. U. W., and 
served as Grand Master Workman one term, and also Representative to the 
Supreme Lodge. It was appropriately said of him by a contemporary : 

" He is a man conspicuous among that class of clean California statesman 
who have lived their lives here, trained in our ways, knowing our needs, and 
who aim to elevate, purify and dignify the profession of politics."

M. W. Past Grand Master Mason. 

Edmund Clement Atkinson is a native of Maine, and aged about 50 years. 
He is a descendant from Sir Hugh Atkinson, of Oxfordshire, England, whose 
coat of arms, consisting of a cross voided between four rampant lions repre- 
sented on a blue field, and surmounted by a helmet, is still in tlie possession 
of the Atkinson family. This portrait is a very fair likeness. 

He was born at Charleston, Maine, November 17th, 18.37. The early part 
of his life was spent on a farm, attending school, teaching and as a student at 
Waterville College. He was for several years a teacher in Comer's Commer- 
cial College, Boston, and afterwards joint owner of a chain of commercial col- 
leges at Janesville and Oslikosh, Wisconsin, and Rockford, Illinois, known as 
Atkinson & Reed's Business Colleges. 

(in his arrival in California in 1872, he founded the Sacramento Business 
College, whicli has become prominent among the educational institutions of 
the Statf'. His scliolarly attainments, classical education and literary pur- 
suits, coupled with natural ability, render him an able and fluent writer, and 
a most interesting and impressive speaker. 

As a Mason, he is earnest, zealous and faithful. His Masonic character is 
a living exemplication of the princijiles of the Order. He is member and Past 
Master of Sacramento Lodge, No. 40, a Companion of Sacramento Chapter, 
No. 3, Royal Arch Masons, and a Knight Templar in Sacramento Command- 
ery No. 2. 

In 1882 he was elected Senior Grand "Warden, and for two years thereafter 
was re-elected to the same position. At the Annual Convocation of 1885 he 
was advanced to Deputy Grand Master, and at the communicatiou of 1886 
he was elected M. W. Grand Master. 

He still resides in the city of Sacramento, and devotes his whole time to 
the duties of his position as principal of his business college.

Past Grand Master. 

Ex-Governor Perkins isoneofCaliforna's favorite sous. Tlirough an ardu- 
ous life oommenciug as a cabin boy, lie has steadily advanced in wealth, hon- 
or, position, and the esteem of his countrymen. He has tilled with credit the 
office of Governor of this State, and is now one of the firm of Goodall, Perkins 
& Co., owners of the Pacific Coast Steamship Company. 

Mr. Perkins was raised a Master Mason in Oroville Lodge, No. 103, Decem- 
ber 15, 1859, and after holding nearly all the offices in his Lodge, including 
that of Worshipful Master, he was elected Grand Junior Warden of the 

Grand Lodge of California in 1871, Grand Senior Warden in 1872, Deputy 
Grand Master in 1873, and Grand Master in 1874, by an almost unanimous vote. 
He was knighted October 23, 1861, in Oroville Commandery, No. 5, in which 
he held the positions of Junior and Senior Warden, Captain of the Guard, Re- 
corder and Commander. In 1808 lie was elected Grand Senior Warden of the 
Grand Commandery of California, Grand Standard-bearer in 1871, and Grand 
Commander in April, 1883, and Chairman of the Triennial Conclave Commit- 
tee. He has always been a great favorite with the Order, warmly attached to 
the principles of Masonry, and always finding time in the midst of his exten- 
sive business to visit the Lodge. 

Bro. Perkins is a fluent, eloquent, and forcible speaker, courteous and af- 
fable to all classes, a steadfast friend, given to large hospitality, and generous 
in his liberality to the poor. In the Senate, in the Grand Lodge, in the Grand 
Commandery, in the Merchants' Exchange, in political conventions, he has 
always evinced the talents of a leader, and commanded respect.

turer ShaeiTer. He was appointed Grand Lecturer of the Grand Lodge of Cal- 
ifornia in October, 1869, and, with the exception of one year, has occupied that 
responsible position continuously up to the present time. His patient, amia- 

ble and genial disposition, coupled with long experience, especially qualifits 
liim for the peculiar duties of his important office; and the many enconiums 
bestowed upon him by successive Grand Masters are a sufficient guaranty of 
his efficiency and capability in the discharge of his duties.

truly said he is a citizen of unblemished reputation and high standing in his 

In his social and domestic relations, Sir Knight Lathrop is genial, affable, 
and kind. He has a worthy wife and interesting family. 

Sir Knight Lathrop's Masonic history dates from 1851, when he took the 
Blue Lodge degrees in East Saginaw, Mich., in the lodge of the same name, 
No. 77. He went no higher in the work until after he came to California, when 
he took the Chapter degree, Royal Arch, in Grass "Valley Chapter, No. 18, and 
the Commandery Degree in Nevada Commandery, No. 6, being knighted by 
Sir Charles Marsh. Sir Knight Lathrop is a charter member of Oakland Com- 
mandery, No. 11, and has had the high honor of receiving the election of Com- 
mander for the past four years in succession, having also previously held im- 
portant offices. This fact, showing the appreciation in which he is held by 
his intelligent brother Sir Knights, speaks more in his praise than would col- 
umns of print.

Grand Treasurer, Grand Lodge, California. 

The pioneers of California passed through an ordeal that tested character 
and capability. The trials and triumplis in California life are well illustrated 
in the career of our Grand Treasurer. In 1852 he was whip-sawiug on the 

mountains, to procure lumber to turn the river bed of the Mokelumne. Since 
then he has become the inventor and patentee of the celebrated Spaulding Saw 
Tooth, and is now one of the largest manufacturers of saw teeth in the world. 
In public and private life he has maintained a spotless reputation. His use- 
ful inventions and business tact have brought him wealth, and the offices of 
trust and honor which he has filled have come to him without solicitation. His 
Masonic record is almost continued service in office since 1855. 



He was \V. M. of Mission, IGi), for two years, and W. M. of Oakland, 1888, 
six years, and filled some oftiee in Alameda (Miapter for ten consecutive years. 
He is Past Commander of Oakland Commandery, and member of Scottish Kite, 
33 degree. 

lie is an active member of the Masonic Veteran Asssciation, and for many 
years was a member of tlie Masonic Hoard of Keli(!f. In tlie Indt^pendent Or- 
<ler of Odd Fellows lie liolds a memlxirsiiij). and also in the lOncampment. 
Four years he was a member of tin; City (Jouncil, and two terms Mayor of 
Oakland. He was Assistant United States Treasurer from 1881 to 1885, and is 
now one of the Regents of [..eland Stanford. Jr., University. He is noted for 
his generosity, patience, constancy and fidelity; is a true friend, forbearing 
and forgiving ; fashions, conquers and leads by the Golden Rule. 


The life and career of liro. BufHngton are a model exemplification of a hu- 
manitarian and Cliristian gentleman. He is ])resident of the Young Men's 
Christian Association of Oakland, and has recently been re-elected to that 
important office for the third time. Mr. Buttington, not long since, conceived 
the idea of establishing a fund for the aid oi superannuated ministers, and 
in the execution of this idea, traveled hundreds of miles, and succeeded in col- 
lecting some live thousand dollars for this charitable purpose. He has ever 
taken a deep interest in the Sunday School cause, and for half a century has 
been a constant and enthusiastic laborer in this field of religious work. In the 
Masonic fraternity Mr. Buftington takes high rank. He is a member of Cali- 
fornia Lodge, No. 1, of Master Masons; California Chapter, No. 5, of Royal 
Arch Masons; California Council, No 2, of Royal and Select Masters; ('al-

In the social circle, among business men, and in fraternal organizations, 
Bro. Merritt occupies a position of honor, trust and popularity. He is a self- 
made man, and by his own exertions in manual and literary pursuits, in teach- 
ing school in winter and farming in summer, laid tlie foundation for his suc- 
cessful career. He was born in Alabama. 1839, and the Huguenot on the side 
of the father and the Puritan on tlie side of the mother were his ancestry. 
His occupations as teacher, farmer, millman, magistrate, and manufacturer 
have been tilled with credit and tact. Surrounded by an interesting family, 
consisting of wife and five children— one son and four daughters — a beautiful 
home in Seminary Park, Alameda, it may be truly said that he has carved his

of Master Mason, and in December of the same year was elected Junior War-

Among the "Argonauts" who have been closely identified with the 
growth of our State, Abraham Powell, manager of tiie Puget Sound Company, 
occupies a prominent position. He arrived in California in 1849, and during 
all these years he has been associated in the great lumber interests of our 
coast, and is now at the head of one in the State. 

Altliough he has been in active business life, requiring arduous mental 
labor, he has taken time to foster and promote our leading fraternal societies. 
Was made a Mason July Gth, 1854, in Integrity Lodge, No. 187, Pliiladelphia; ex- 
alted June 12th, 1868, in Naval Chapter at Vallejo, California, and knighted 

August Gth, 1869, in California Commandery No. 1, California. He is also thirty- 
second degree Scottish lilte, and a member of the Masonic Veterans and of 
the Shrine. Was one of the petitioners for Masonic charter (No. 87) at Valle- 
jo, which was organized under dispensation July 17th. 1855, and charter grant- 
ed May 7th, 1856, Mr. Powell being Worshipful Master. Visited the Triennial 
Conclave at Chicago in 1883, commanding the thirteenth division : also at St. 
Louis in 1886. Was one of the charter members of the Society of California 
Pioneers, organized at Vallejo May 27th, 1869. and served a term as Presi- 
dent, and is also a member of the San Francisco Pioneers. 

Bro. Powell is a fine specimen of manhood, genial, benevolent and kind- 
hearted. As a business man he is held in high esteem ; through a long and intri - 
cate business his name has never been assailed. At the family circle, in the 
lodge-room, or at the banquet he is a captivating conversationalist, full of wit 
and humor. The Argonauts who laid the foundation of this great empire on the 
Pacific Coast endured hardships, surmounted obstacles, and gained triumphs 
that will place their names on the pages of the history of our country among 
the heroes of the nineteenth century.

Fifty years ago, during the senseless and cruel tirade against secret socie- 
ties, and especially against the Masonic fraternity, it required close and dili- 
gent inquiry to ascertain who was a member of this great common fraternity. 
During the last decade the F. and A. M. and auxilliary societies have grown 
beyond precedent, and in every community a large proportion of leading citi- 

zens are members of one or more of these great fraternal orders. The subjei^t 
of our sketch, Byron G. Crane, and one of the firm of Crane, Hastings & Co., 
importers and wholesale liquor dealers, has grown up with the growth of our 
State, and gained an enviable reputation as a sagacious business man and an 
exemplary and high-minded citizen. He is a member of Occidental Lodge F. 
and A. M., California Chapter No. 5, R. A. M., and California Commandery 
No. 1, Knights Templar. Fraternity is not a meaningless word with him; and 
benevolent deeds to the unfortunate and distressed have endeared him to his 
fraters, and among those who have known him in tlie community in which he 
has lived.

We have a just pride in our Native Sons. Climate and opportunity have 
developed a class of young men and women who have become an honor to 
our State. The subject of our sketch was born in San Francisco, and is a fair

Mayor of Oakland. 

The young, level-headed and popular Mayor of the city of Oakland has 
gained this highly honorable position as a representative of the business men 
and industrial classes of this municipality. He came to California at the age 
of 15 years, finished his education in the Santa Barbara College, and by his 
own exertions established in conjunction with his brother, Frank Pierce, the 
house of Pierce & Co., hardware merchants. He has always taken a deep in- 
terest in the welfare of his constituents, and his sterling integrity and reliabil- 
ity as a business man have given him a popularity among the'sons of toil, and 
an official position seldom gained by a man under 30 years of age. He has 
been a leading and active member of the Oakland Board of Trade, and was se- 

lected by the merchants of this city to act as one of the members of the Free- 
holders Commission to frame a city charter. His brilliant career forcibly il- 
lustrates the triumphs of peace. Official position has been given without ask- 
ing and against his expressed desire. He has been closely identified with the 
growth and development of Oakland, a city of homes and manufactures ; be- 
lieves in her future greatness, and is never so happy as when he is advancing 
her interests. In the F. and A. M. he has been signally honored. He is a 
member of Oakland Commandery, No. 11, Knights Templar, 32^ in Scottish 
Rite Masonry, member of the Grand Consistory of California, and promoted to 
the Court of Honor of Washington, D. C, from which body he holds an official 

Surrounded by an interesting family, honored and esteemed by his neigh- 
bors, there seems to be a bright future for him in keeping with the success he 
has attained in the past.

H. C. SHA^ST. 

The following sketch is a truthful tribute to one who has been closely iden- 
tified with the development of our State. 

There are in every community unassuming men who have an innate mod- 
estj'^ and sensitive nature, who avoid public liouors and office. This is char- 
acteristic of tlie whole life of Mr. Shaw. During a long and successful career 

as a merchant he has gained an enviable reputation as an upright, generous 
and public-spirited citizen. He has been urged frequently to accept office, and 
has persistently refused, altliough at one time an active member of the State 
militia. He is a member of the Stockton Lodge No. O, F. and A. M., and a very 
popular member of the Knights Templar. His high sense of honor, forbear- 
ance, and universal generosity among his neighbors, have given him a popular- 
ity and respect that is seldom accorded to a person in the common walks of 
life. He is a fine specimen of pliysical and mental manhood, commanding 
presence, and great influence in the local affairs of this section of our State.

Fouader of the A. O. XT. W., Oct. 27, 1868. 

The life of Father Upchurch is an example of what a poor mechanic can do 
for humanity. He was a philanthropist, and the subject of benefiting his race 
had been his study for years. In his autobiography he says : " Notliingseemed 
to present itself so forcibly as a society where the employer and employee could 
be brought face to face, and obligate them to the same great principles of the 
greatest good to the greatest number." He opened the first temperance hotel 
south of Mason and Dixon's line, and it was a failure. He planted a twig in 
Meadville, Penn., and it has grown from twenty members in nine months from 

organization to 200,000 members in less than 20 years. His whole purpose in 
life was to benefit his fellow man, and although he Avas a poor man, slow of 
speech, and simple-minded, his name is enshrined in the hearts of a grateful 
people, and his name will go down as one of the great benefactors of this age. 
He was made a Past Supreme Master Workman by the Supreme Lodge ; was 
a member of the Select Knights, and also of the Masonic fraternity. The in- 
scription that will be placed on a monument that will be erected by the grand 
army of Workmen will be " Founder of the Ancient Order of United Work-

Supreme Master Workmau. 

The marvelous and unprecedeutetl growth of the Ancient Order of Unit- 
ed Workmen in California is largely due to the efforts of the first Grand Mas- 
ter, \Vm. H. .Jordan. At tlie formation of tlie Grand Lodge there were less 
than 500 members. During his two terms in otiice, the membership had in- 
creased to over 10,000 and a separate jurisdiction. 

Bro. Jordan was then a young man, and his great benevolent heart was 
so ardently enlisted that he gave a large portion of his time in organizing lodg- 
es. At that early day in his life, he used that consummate tact and skill in 

organizing and moving great bodies of men that showed him to be a natural 
born leader and diplomat. 

During the last elevenyears he has attended every session of the Supreme 
Lodge as a representative or as an officer of that body. As an index of his 
philanthropic and sagac'ious management as Grand Master Workman, when 
the call for help came from the yellow fever sufferers of Nashville, he tele- 
graphed S500 on his own responsibility, which was duly approved by the 
Grand Lodge. But more complete was this great act of benevolence when, on 
appeal from Bro. Jordan as G. M. W.,each Workman in this jurisdiction paid 
the sum of $2.50 voluntary without levying an assessment, to aid the widows 
and orphans of Tennessee. 

He is a member of the Select Knights F. and A. M. , and a number of ben- 
evolent orders. At the last session of the Legislature he was elected Speaker 
of the Assembly, a position he tilled with great credit. As a lawyer, states- 
man, and fraternal leader he has acquited himself with signal ability. His 
name will go into history as an organizer, philanthropist, and benefactor.

The history of t lie Ancient Order of United Workmen in this jurisdiction 
is but a record of the career of "l^'ather Pratt," tlie founder of the order on this 
coast. He instituted the first lodge, California No. 1, was elected Grand Re- 

corder at the iusliiutiui, of the Grand Lodge, and lias held this oflice continu- 
ously for 11 years. During that time liundreds of thousands of dollars have 
passed through his hands without a ten cent deficit. He is a man of studious 
liabits, well versed in society usage, and his decisions and interpretation of the 
1 aw in our order has almost become stare decisis. As Grand Recorder and Su- 
preme Eepresentative he has rendered naost faithful and intelligent service, 
and the high appreciation he is held in by Workmen on this coast is but a just 
tribute to the honest and sagacious management of his official department. 
He needs no chiseled monument to perpetuate his name as a great benefactor.

Past Grand Master Workman. 

There is no society that, during the time it has been in existence in this 
State, has enlisted a more able corps of leaders than the Ancient Order of 
United Workmen. 

Prominent among those who have given their time and efficient labor in 
building and establishing this order is Bro. Rogers. His services were tirst 
enlisted in 1878, as a member of Ukiah Lodge, No. 33. As a representative to 

the Grand Lodge his zeal and ability were soon discovered, and he was elected 
Grand Overseer in 1881, Grand Foreman in 1882, and Grand Master Workman 
in 1883, and Representative to the Supreme Lodge in 1888. He is a forcible 
speaker, logical debater, has a fine address, and his administratiou was a very 
successful one. 

In the F. and A. M., Independent Order of Odd Fellows, and Knights of 
Honor lie has filled prominent official positions. As an Attorney-at-Law he 
ranks with the leading members of the bar, and has a lucrative practice. His 
characteristics are strict integrity, open, honest dealing, witb a purpose of fol- 
lowing principle rather than policy. He is one of tlie firm of Rogers, Matthews 
& Chilstrom, Attorneys-at-Law, San Francisco.

Past Grand Master Workman. 

Men who are benevolent and sympathetic are the leaders and workers in 
fraternal societies. Such-are tlie characteristics of Brother Brewer. iJuring 
an actual and busy life, he has given a great deal of time, labor and money in 
promoting benevolent orders. He is emphatically a humanitarian and society 
man. At the institution of Union 21, A. O. TT. W., he was the first P. M. W.; 

Grand Foreman in 1879, Grand Master and Supreme Representative in 1880, 
and is at present chairman of the Finance Committee of the Supreme Lodge. 
He has been a member of Abou Ben Adhem Lodge, I. O. O. F. , for twenty 
years, member of the Knights of Pythias, Red Men, and several other promi- 
inent and popular benevolent societies and humane organizations. He is a 
good speaker and debater, generous, kind-hearted, and seems never so happy 
as when he is helping the distressed, visiting the sick, and alleviating the suf- 
ferings of his fellow-men. Providence has fashioned him in a generous mould, 
and whether in prosperity or adversity, he is alwaj'S ready to lend a helping 
hand to gladden saddened hearts.

The principal object of the Association is to give an additional protection of 
$1,000 to families of the Ancient Order of United Workmen, thereby securing to 
them $3, GOO instead of $2,000 from among the members of the same fraternal 

Another important feature of the Association we present is, that it receives 
as members and gives the same benefit, as she may direct, to the widow, mother, 
wife, daughter or sister of a member of the A O.U.W. The great advantage of 
this feature is universally acknowledged, and is receiving marked attention, es- 
pecially from the wives of those who belong to the A.O.U.W. 


To become a member of the Association the applicant, if a Workman, must 
be in good standing in his Lodge, under 50 years of age, and in sound bodily 
health. No re-medical examination is required, unless the applicant has been 
under the care of a physician within one year, or has been rejected by a physician 
of a beneficiary organization since he became a member of the A.O.U.W. 

If the applicant is the widow, mother, wife, daughter or sister of a member 
of the A.O.U.W., she must be over iS and under 50 years of age, and the ap- 
plication must be endorsed by a respectable physician, who has previously made 
a medical examination of the applicant. 


The admission fee is three dollars and the annual dues two dollars ; the ad- 
mission fee and dues to be paid upon the delivery of the Certificate of Member- 
ship. Average cost of assessments about $10 a year, or less than 25 cents per 
week for the protection of $1,000. The Association is governed by a Board of 
Directors elected annually by the members. 


Assessments can be remitted by Money Order to the Secretary, or paid to 
the Agent of the Association in the place where the member resides.

We present a fine engraving of E. M. Reading, Past Grand Commander of 
the Select Knights of California, Past CTrand Lecturer, and Secretary of the 
Workman's Guarantee Fund Association, one of the most gifted and promi- 
nent workers in this jurisdiction, and one who needs but little, if any, intro- 
duction to the members of the A. O. U. W. on the Pacific Coast. 

He joined the A. O. U. "W. in August, 1878, and since then he has been a 
member of several important committees of the Grand Lodge, an incorporated 
Trustee, President and Secretary respectively for years of the Relief Commit- 
tee, Secretary of tlie School of Instruction, and for a long time Grand Lectur- 
er. He has traveled in the interest of his brethren through British Columbia, 
Washington Territory, Oregon, Arizona, and California. 


His public addresses, earnest and eloquent, have been listened to by 
thousands, and received the warm commendation of the public press. 

In 1879 he conceived and organized the Workman Guarantee Fund Asso- 
ciation, an organization composed of those belonging to the A. O. U. W. 

This progressing Association, the creation of Bro. Reading, has disbursed 
to the widows and orphans of the Order $150,000. 

He has held prominent position in office, among which was Senator from Ne- 
vada. He is Past Grand Commander S.K., and Supreme Standard Bearer. He is 
a big-hearted, generous f rater, and is a member of Oriental Lodge, No. 144, Free 
and Accepted Masons; Lodge of Perfection, Scottish Rite; Unity Lodge, No. 
134, 1. O. O. F. ; Oriental Encampment, No. 57, Veteran Odd Fellows, S. F.; 
Myrtle Lodge, No. 16, Knights of Pythias; Washington Council, American 
Knights of Honor, of which he is the present Commander, in all of which he is 
looked upon as a man whose devotion to principle, love of fair play and gen- 
erous impulses entitle him to the honors he has received as a citizen, and tlie 
affectionate regard in which he is held as a brother.

Grand Receiver. 
At the institution of the Grand Lodge of California, 13th day of Novem- 
ber, 1877, Bro. Haile was elected Grand Receiver, and has held this responsi- 
ble trust continuously— an example of honesty and faithful service. As a Work- 
man he has taken a prominent part in building and solidifying this order. He 
has from an early age taken an active part in fraternal societies, and has held 
leading official positions during his useful career. He is a member of the Ma- 

sonic Veterans' Association of California, and served four years as Worshipful 
Master, and ten years as Recorder. He has been a trustee of the Orphans' 
Home at Vallejo, under the auspices of the Good Templars, and prominent 
official office in that order. 

Bro. Haile is a man of warm and ardent friendships, generous impulses, 
and decided opinions. Having been trained in a rigid school of rectitude, he 
admits of no compromise with wrong, and is always ready to champion the 
right and assist the weak whenever he can, regardless of aspersion or personal 
discomfort. His life has been one of continued usefulness, and his record has 
been one that'has been that of a;faithful and honest financial agent, that has 
aided the growth.and stability of the Ancient Order of United Workmen.

Grand Foreman. 

The great interest, and beneficent influence of fraternal and beneficiary so- 
cieties lias enlisted tlie services of a large number of our leading citizens. 
Prominent among these is Bro. Young. Although he has a large practice in his 
professioQ as a lawyer, and has accepted official positions, among which was 
a member of the Legislature for several years, he has devoted a large portion 
of his time to humanity, by fostering these fraternal organizations. At the 

last session of the Grand Lodge he was unanimously elected Grand Foreman, 
having served as Grand Overseer the year previous. He is a prominent mem- 
ber of F. and A. M. and Knights Templnr. He filled the position of Grand 
Orator of the Grand Lodge in 1886. A striking instance in society lite \yas his 
service as Grand Patron of the order of Eastern Star m 188b, whilst his esti- 
mable and gifted wife, who has been admitted to practice in the ^uPFf.™® 
Court of California, filled the position of Grand Matron, with signal ability, 
of the order of Eastern Star in 1885. He has high scholastic attainments is a 
close student, and has a high reputation as a clear-headed and successtul law- 
yer. He is in the prime of life, having large experience in society attairs, ana 
one of our honored and trusted leaders.

Past Grand Coiiiniander, S. K. 

The life of Samuel M. Short ridge iu a marked degree illustrates the possi- 
bilities in this age for a self-made young man to assume great responsibilities 
and become a leader among men before he has reached 30 years in the span of 
life. Schooled in the rough, rugged elements surrounding life in his western 
home, he has by hard labor and tact taken a position as an educator, lawyer 
and orator that ranks among our leading men. 

His career in fraternal societies has been brief and brilliant. In 1885 he 
was made a Workman in Spartan Lodge, No. 3(5; elected Guide on the next 
evening, served as Overseer, and is now Past Master Workman of this Lodge. 
He was a charter member of Norman Legion, Select Knights, which was in- 

stituted in March, ISSn, and elected Representative on the same evening to 
the Orand Legion, S. K., that met in San Francisco April 5, 1886. 

He was unanimously elected Grand Commander, S. K., for the Pacific 
Coast, and reelected in 1887. In 1887 he was elected a representative to Su- 
preme Legion. 

Politics early claimed his attention, and in the campaign of 1884 he made a 
brilliant record as an orator and tliinker. His masterly speeches on the tariff 
earned for him the soubriquets of " Boy Orator " and the " Henry Clay of the 
Pacific Coast." He has been invited to deliver the 4th of July oration in San 
Francisco for 1888. 

He has a kindly nature, sympathizing disposition, and a great benevolent 
heart that is quickened at the call of suffering humanity. His own experience 
and struggles in the battle of life have intensified and crystallized his benev- 
olent nature, so that in these fraternal societies he has found a field where 
labor is recreation and suffering humanity has enlisted a leader whose arduous 
toil sweetens life. Comrade Shortridge belongs to a family of high intellectu- 
ality and talent. His brother, Chas M. Shortridge, P. M. W., is editor and 
publisher of the San Jose Daily Mercury.

Tlie subject of our sketch has had a brilliant career. lu 1856, at the age 
of 18 years, he began his struggles in life as a miner in Podever river. He is 
now one of the leading Attornej's-at-Law on the Pacific Coast, and has been 
honored with official positions in this State, both civic and in fraternal socie- 
ties, that stamp him as one of the prominent citizens of the Pacific Coast. For 
three years he filled with great acceptability the office Grand Chancellor of 
the Knights of Pythias: was the first Grand Dictator of the Knights of Honor; 

and in 1884, Grand Master of the Ancient Order of United Workmen. As a 
Senator from San Francisco he stood in the front rank among the law-makers 
of tliis State. He is a fine specimen of physical and mental manhood, and 
stands at tlie head of the bar as one of the ablest lawyers on the Pacific Coast. 
Although he has a large and lucrative practice he finds time to attend to fra- 
ternal organizations, and almost from the commencement of Society life he 
has been called upon to deliver public addresses on all important occasions. 
For the last two years he has been President of the Blood Horse Association, 
and under his management it has grown to be one of the best conducted and 
most prosperous in the United States. He has great breadth of mind, an in- 
tuitive ability, quick perception and sound judgment.

Prominently connected with the growth and development of Southern ChI- 
ifornia, our genial f rater Ex-Mayor Ey occupies a leading place. He emigrated 
from Germany when a boy, and at the age of 25 years located in Anaheim, 
California. Being of a benevolent turn of mind, be has taken an active part 
in buihling up the A. O. U. W. and American Legion of Honor. He has filled 

important positions in each organization, and is now a Grand Lodge officer in 
each order. As a member of F. and A. M. he occupies a prominent position, 
and by long years of service as an executive officer in fraternal organizations, 
and civic offices in his native town, he is looked upon as one of the ' ' city 
fathers," although he is but 37 years of age. Benevolence and bravery are 
prominent traits in his character, and the private deeds of charity and defense 
of the helpless orphan and widow, together with chivalric conduct toward wo- 
man when in peril, has been a cliaracteristic of his honorable career and use- 
ful life.

Grand Overseer. 
Our space will allow but a brief sketch of Brother Adams, whose career 
has been one of usefulness, adventure and romance. At the age of 13 years 
he left his father's home at St. Louis and enlisted as a drummer boy m U. S. 

Armv, and started for Mexico. He was transferred to the Second Texas Bang- 
ers, under Col. Albert Sidney Johnson, and was discharged at Fort Bliss, Tex- 
as, in 1847. During the next six months he carried the military mail from V ort 
Bliss to Albuquerque, N. M., encountering dangers and miraculous escapes 
incident to frontier life. . 

On December 25, 1849, he first set foot in California, and was in turn min- 
er, merchant, stock raiser, until 1859, when he commenced reading law, and

was a(lniitt(>(l to tli(! ')!ir. He joined tlit; Odd I-'cUowh in 1S(J2, iind l-'iicainp- 
luent in 18(^1, and lias passed tlie eliairs in each organization. He served as 
Worslii|)fiil Slaster in KiiiK l»avid's Lodge, Santa i'nv/.. for three years, and is 
a member of the chapt<!r. He was a eliarter member of Olive Loclge, A. O. U' 
W., servedas Mastisr Workman for three years, chairman on f^Jood of the Order

served as Deputy Sheriff, U. S. Marshal, (3ounty Treasurer, (Jountv .Judge, and

tlie Snaki! Indians in Kast(un Oregon, served in the Modoc war in ISfiii, and a 
scout for eight months in the Rogue Klver war, 18.55. He is of Scotch descent, 
and his cliaracteristics, bravery, indei)endence and patriotism are an inheri- 
tance from H noted ancestry. Througli a career of privation and liar(lsiiii)s on 
the frontier, or in the heyday of life with wealth and civic honors, his benevo- 
lent nature has always drawn him to fraternal societies, and he finds his best 
enjoyment in advancing and promoting them.

The spirit of this age, co-oijerative associations, beneficiary and fraternal 
orders, has enlisted the best efforts of a large number of our prominent pro- 
fessional men and capitalists. 

Mr. Fairweather, a leading attorney at law, has given the subject of 
fraternal co-operative life insurance a great deal of attention ; and his 
efforts in their behalf have been highly appreciated bj' his fraters. He was 
born in New Brunswick in 1851, and after attaining a liberal education in his 
native city, St. John, N. B., attended several courses of lectures at Harvard 
University, received the degree of LL. B., and was admitted to the Bar in 

1873. He locatedin San Francisco in 1881, and at once was recognized as a 
lawyer of high legal attainments, and has kept his position in the front rank 
since. In our beneficiary orders he has accepted office only at urgent so- 
licitation, aud at times when his services would dispel discord and bring har- 
mony and good feeling. This was notably the case when he took the posi- 
tion of Master Workman in Franklin Lodge, 44, A. O. U. W., and also District 
Deputy of District No. 2, A. O. U. W., in 1886. 

Bro. Fairweather has a commanding presence, happy expression, great 
influence, and has earned the reputation of being one of the best presiding of- 
ficers in the State. He is a forcible speaker, close reasoner, and has a happy 
faculty of captivating his audience without apparent effort. His happy mar- 
ital relations, popularity and high intellectuality, warrant us in predicting a 
bright future and a continued life of usefulness, high esteem and honor.

of talent is qviite remarkable, and it is his pleasure and pride to use his elocu- 
tionary, musical and imitative powers for the benefit of the distressed, Sunday 
Schools, Relief Associations, Temperance and Fraternal Societies. He is a 
Past Grand Master and Past Grand Patriarch in I. O O. F., and has served as 
Representative to G. L. U. S. He is Past Grand Dictator and served as 
Supreme Representative, K. of H. In the Ancient Order of United Workmen 
he has made a record of having more increase of membership than any other 
administration. He served two terms as G. M. W., and has been elected 
Supreme Representative for three sessions. Bro. Barnes is genial, and can 
easily adapt himself to his audience for a jovial time, or discussing great ques- 
tions of policy or law. It is undoubtedly true as has been said by a contem- 
porary, " He has delivered more public addresses for charitable objects and 
fraternal societies than any man in the United States."

Past Grand Patriarch. 

Men who are benevolent, and have a sympathizing nature, are drawn to 
these fraternal orders, and become the most enthusiastic supporters of a system 
of charity that guards against fraud, and never fails to grant relief to those 
who are found worthy. In the system of weekly benefits, care and support 

of the orphan and widow in the well-regulated manner of the I. O. O. F., the 
subject of our sketch found a field suited to his tastes, and a society that'en- 
listed his best efforts to sustain, enlarge and perpetuate. 

Bro. Crosett was born in 1844 at Boston, of Puritan stock, and by right can 
claim descent from the true aristocracy of our country. When quite a young 
man he came to California, and learned the art of setting type in Grass Valley 
where he resided until 1863, when he changed his location for San Francisco. 
He joined Pacific Lodge of Odd Fellows February 10, 1870, was elected Janu- 
ary 3d, 1878, Noble Grand; was appointed D. D. G. M., and served in the 
year 1880; joined Golden Gate Encampment, No. 1, of Patriarchs, November 


12th, 1875, aud elected Cliief Patriarcli for the term ending December 31, 1879. 
He was appointed, and served as D. D. G. 1'. for District No. 1, for the years 
188.'l-84, and was elected Grand Patriarch in the year 188G, and served the full 
term of twelve months, visiting every Encampment in the jurisdiction, be- 
sides institnting three new Encampments. His term was considered very suc- 
cessful; in fact, no greater for the advancement of the Patriarchal branch of 
the Order has ever been taken by any Grand Patriarch in this jurisdiction. 
His report shows that for him the year was one of hard and active work. At 
the conclusion of his term of office, and in recognition of his services, the Grand 
Encampment on October 18, 1887, elected him as Grand Representative to the 
Sovereign Grand Lodge, for the years 1888-1889. For the year 1888 he was 
again appointed to the office of D. D. G. P., in connection with his other du- 
ties. He joined the Patriarch Militant, Canton No. 5; was appointed on Col. 
E. H. Black's staff as Asst. Surgeon, with rank of Captain, January 1st, 1887. 
He was appointed Major and Assistant Adjutant General to Brigadier Gener- 
al E. K. Russell, P. M., September 10th, 1887. 

Mr. Crosett is in real estate, and although in active business he always 
finds time to attend to the duties pertaining to his official position and lodge 
meetings. He is genial, has a pleasant address, and is very popular among 
his fraters.

Daniel Sewell is a native of England. At the age of eleven years he emi- 
grated to the United States, and to California in 1859. following liis occupation 
of contractor at Old Sonora for fifteen years. During his residence in Sonora he 
took a deep interest in the fire department. Six times Mr. Sewell was elected 
Secretary of Hose Company No. 1; once Treasurer of the same; twice appoint- 
ed Secretary of Board of Fire Delegates ; three times elected one of the five 
Trustees of the city of Sonora; five times elected First Assistant Engineer of 
tlie Sonora Fire Department; and four times Chief Engineer of the same. His 
fidelity is shown in this connection, that " for fifteen years he was never absent 
from his post in times of danger." 

He is a veteran Odd Fellow, and during the year 188G served with distinction 
as President of the Veteran Odd Fellows' Association for the Pacific Coast. 

[Engravbd by Suhr & Painter.] 

In 1876 and 1879 he was a Representative in the Grand Lodge of California. He 
became a member of Bald Mountain Encampment, and filled various official 
positions, and resigned tlie oftice of Scribe when he removed to San Francisco. 

He joined Triumph Lodge, 180, A. O. U. W., in 1881; served in several of- 
ficial positions, among which were M. W.; six terms as Financier, and Dis- 
trict Deputy Grand Master in 1887. He did signal service as a member of Sa- 
maritan Council, No. 13, O.C. F.. in the great secession movement in that order, 
and was created a Past Councillor by the Supreme Lodge. 

He is a naember of United Order of Honor, and was a charter member of 
Enterprise Lodge, 115: was elected Past President and Grand Vice-President in 
this growing order. Brother Sewell takes a deep interest in municipal. State 
and national affairs. 

At the last general election he was a candidate for School Trustee, and 
has served in civic official positions at different times during a term of years. 
He is a man of sterling worth, indomitable perseverance and strict integrity. 
Benevolent, frank, and faithful to every trust, he has endeared himself to a 
large circle of warm friends and f raters. He has a State notoriety as a fine 
artist and skillful photographer.

The Odd Fellows' Hall, situated on the corner of 7th and Market Streets, is the best arranged' 
most valuable, and better furnished than any Society Building west of the Rocky Mountains. It has 
9 Lodge Rooms, and an Assembly Hall— commonly known as Odd Fellows' Hall. This room has a 
seating capacity for 1400, and with its spacious parlors and fine acoustic properties has become the 
most popular Assembly Hall in San Francisco for Balls, Select Parties, and a Reception Room for 
State Occasions, and Anniversary Celebrations. This magnificent temple with grounds cost over 
$500,000, and its management has been liberal. By using good discretion they have secured the pat-

Past Gi-and Dictator, K. of H. 

Diiriug the last five years a umuber of our native sons have been chosen 
to leading and executive positions in civic, militarv and social life Promi- 
nent among these is the subject of our sketch. He was born in San Francisco 
in the year 1855, passed through the vicissitudes incident to life in a new coun- 
try, and gained a ripe experience in early manhood. During his whole life 
lie has been a close student, is a graduate of college, received the degree of A 
B. in 1873, and the degree of A. M. in 1874, at tlie age of nineteen years 

In 1880, he joined the K. of H., was appointed District Deputy for three 
successive years 1883 '84 and '85. In 1886, he was elected Assistant Grand 
Dictator, and in March, 1887, Grand Dictator. 

, As a lawyer he occupies the front rank. As a public speaker, lie is pleas- 
ing, argunaentative and concise ; seldom indulges in oratorical flights, but an- 
alyzes, and by facts and figures presents his subject in such a masterly man- 
ner that his audience are charmed and instructed. 

He has a high social standing, unimpeachable cbaracter, temperate habits 
and scho arly attainments. In society life he now occupies the position of

in valley, saving the horseback-trip down the mountain, which was the only disagreeable feat- 
ure of visiting those wonderful Points, and saving two days" time, as bv other routes it takes 
two days' stay in the valley to visit these Points before you leave on Return Trip. 

The road is kept in excellent order, and for six months in the year is bordered on each side 
by an embroidery of ferns and flowers, with here and there a bulibling spring, where the trav- 
eler may drink crystal waters fresh from the snows and glaciers of the high Sierra, and observe 
the adjacent cottage, whose occupants enjoy a contented and unambitious life.

Mayor of Stockton. 

Mr. Sliippee was one of tbe Pioneers of the Great San Joaquin Valley. 
He commenced liis successful career as a clerk in a large grocery house, in tbe 
city of Stockton. His industry, economy and business sagacity brought him 
wealth and position in society, and at an early day he was promment in vari- 
ous enterprises having for their object the development of the State, and es- 

pecially the San Joaquin Valley. As a merchant, farmer and banker he has 
been eminently successful. lu 1867 he associated himself with others inform- 
ing the Stockton Savings and Loan Society, which was one of the tirst, and is 
now the largest savings bank outside of San Francisco, and of which be has 
been a director since the formation, and president for the last 11 years. 

Mr. Shippce has never accepted any office except as councilman and Ma- 
yor fur the citv of Stockton, but has been president of every corporation or as- 
sociation in which he has been interested. For 14 years he has been president 
of the San Joaquin Valley Agricultural Association, and also a director of the 
State Agricultural Society, being tbe oldest officer in the board. He was presi-

(lent of tlie State AKiicnltural Sooioty for 18H7, and re-oloctud for IKHS. At an 
oarly dati; lie took a deep interest and was one of tlie leading men in Itiiilding 
gravel roads out of Stockton, and is now president of oni;. IIi' was the eliief 
organizer of tlit! Stockton Combined I[arv(!St<!r an<l Agriiniltural Works, with 
a capital of .f;}0<>,()(H). wlnjse sales, in agricnltnral njachiin^ry and combined har- 
vesters, were over $2.S(i,(HM) in 18H(). He is a positive man, of a genial natnre, 
of few wonl», qnick perception, and grasps opportunities for advancement that 
men of slower tiiought would lose. 

His sympathy for tliose who are making an effort to better their condition 
in life has been intensified by his own struggl<!S, and to help one of this class 
he gives lavishly without publicity, and charity seekers are always anxious 
to get him to head the list. Time has dealt gently with him, although his life 
from boyhood lias been one of continual activity and mental strain. He is tall 
and erect, nearly six feet in height, and has an elasticity in his step that be- 
tokens years of active labor.

Tlie Founder of the N. S. G. W. 

General A. M. Winn was born in Loudon county, Virginia, April 27, 1810, 
liis death occurring on the 2fith of August, 1883, in Sonoma county. He was sev- 
enty-tliree years and four montlis old, having more than scored the biblical 
" three score years and ten." There was a poetic sentiment in laying the old 
Pioneer to rest in the liome of his earlier endeavors, Sacramento, where the wa- 
ters of the river of that name will sing his perpetual requiem. 

He saw California spring from a territorial condition to Statehood, was 
present at its birth and baptism, and witnessed its growth till a world 
stood aghast on beholding the young Giant of the Pacitic. General Winn's 
first official position was as a member of the Capital City's Council, and on 

the death of Sacramento's first Mayor he was chosen to that responsible 
position. In the '49 days he was President of the Relief Association of Odd 
Fellows, which was organized for the benefit of the sick and destitute brethren 
of that charitable Order. General Winn through life felt the impulses of Char- 
ity, and his life was a practical illustration of the fact that through deeds and 
not through mere professions are her works felt. Almost simultaneously with 
the organization of the Relief Association, the Masons and Odd Fellows of 
Sacramento instituted a hospital for the benefit of the sick and destitute mem- 
bers of those organizations, and General Winn was foremost in the movement. 

General Winn in June, 1850, as Brigadier General, issued a proclamation 
to his command to appropriately celebrate the approaching Fourth of July. 
The exact date of the proclamation was June 29. 1850, and on the same date 
in 1885, thirty-five years later, at the Bay City of California he issued a call 
to the young native Californians to meet, to organize an association or order, 
from which grew the Native Sons of the Golden West. 

In 1860 General Winn took up his residence in San Francisco, remaining 
there until a few years before his death.

Past Grand President. 

The Sons of California have proved themselves worthy representatives 
of the most distinguished emigration that ever graced any portion of the 
United States. 

Tlie subject of our sketch is a favorite Son of this commonwealth. He 
has been tried in the crucible of responsible official position, and as an execu- 
tive officer, and is held in the highest esteem as a citizen. He served as Tax 

Collector two years for the City and County of San Francisco, and Deputy 
State Treasurer for two years under Governor Stoneman's administration. 

In Society life he has served in all the subordinate offices in the Native 
Sons of the Golden West, and one year as Grand President. Served as Mas- 
ter Workman of Valley Lodge A. O. U. W., and representative to the Grand 
Lodge for three sessions. Whilst he has decided opinions in political life, 
his patriotism and conscientious duty as a citizen have kept him from the 
" dirty pool " in politics. His aim has been to elevate partisan strife by an 
open, manly, and dignified contest. 

His occupation is real estate, and he holds a leading position as one of 
the reliable firms of San Francisco. In the prime of manhood, surrounded by 
an interesting family, there seems to be a bright future awaiting the genial, 
generous, and methodical Native Son of the Golden West, John H.Grady

Past Grand President, N. S. G. W. 

On the 11th of July, 1875, Mr. Steiubach was elected President of what is 
now California Parlor, No. 1. and during his term of office laid the foundation 
for this growing order. As General Winn was the "Founder," Brother Stein- 
bach has earned the title of " Father." 

He was a bright, active boy of 15 years of age, when the organization was 
first attempted by General Winn, in 18(59. During his first term in ofiflce and 
since, his mind has been wrapped up in advancing, building, and crystallizing 
this humane and popular organization. During his term of office as Grand 
President of the Grand Parlor, there were 37 parlors organized ; a larger num- 
ber tlian in any administration in their history. 

As an ardent son of worthj^ sires who laid the foundation of this great com- 
monwealth, he visited 211 parlors during his term of office as Grand President, 
at his own expense. 

As a speaker his arguments are decisive, his language fluent, his points 
well taken, and his illustrations very happily expressed. He always wins 
the approbation of his audience, and they leave impressed with the verity of 
his arguments. He is perfectly conversant with the history of the order from 
its incipiency to its present maturity, and can therefore speak and act intelli- 
gently about its transactions. 

His life has been an honored and useful one, and he takes a deep interest 
in civic and political affairs. He has served as School Director for the city 
and county of San Francisco, and has earned the titles by good service as Past 
Chancellor of the Knights of Pythias ; Past Councillor of Chosen Friends ; 
Past Officer of United Order of Honor, and numerous other social and political 

As a representative Californian, whose career has been one of serviceto 
his native State, he has proved himself worthy of the honor that has been 
given him, and a popular son of an Argonaut.

Past Grand President >f. S. G. AV. 

The Pacific Coast has reared a generation of men and women physically 
and mentally the peers of any people. Climate, descent and a cosmopolitan 
association has perpetuated the chivahic blood of adventurous pioneers. We 
point with pride to a native race of gallant men and lovely women as worthy 
of the inheritance of tliis favored land. Senator Jones is a good representative 
of a native Californiau. He was born in Butte County, attended public school 
at Chico, and one year at University JMound, Sau Francisco, previous to his 
commencement in Yale College, Conn., in 187(5. He took a literary and law 
course, graduating in 1879, with the degree of LL. B. He was admitted to 

practice in the Supreme Court of Conn, in June, 1879, Supreme Court of Cali- 
fornia in August of the same year, and United States Circuit Court in 1881. 
He served as Judge Advocate of the 5th Brigade N. G. C, and District Attor- 
ney for the County of Butte one term, and at the last general State election was 
elected State Senator from his native County, a position he has tilled with 
credit and signal distinction. Like many native Californians, he has taken 
a deep interest in N. S. G. W. Was Graml Lecturer in 1881 and 1882, and ser- 
ved as Grand President in 1883 and 1884. He has a pleasing address, fine 
physique, and a happy faculty of impressing his associates, and in enterprises 
connected with the development of tlie northern portion of tlie State and 
politically he has been selected a leader. His record as an official has been 
clean, with an eye single for the public weal, and there seems to be a commu- 
nity feeling expressed at the ballot-box that our Native Sous have shown 
themselves worthv of tlie highest honors of our commonwealth.

Past GraiKl President, N. S. G. W. 

The life and labor of Chas. W. Decker in fraternal society life is a signal 
illustration of the spirit of this age. He was born in Sacramento County, 1855, 
graduated from tlie Lincoln Grammar School and after a full course of study, 
received a diploma, from the Medical College of the Pacific as a dentist, which 
occupation he follows witli distinguished success. He joined California Par- 
lor, No. 1, 1877, N. S.G. W., and has held office continuously in this order since 
In the Grand Lodge he has earned the title of Grand Treasurer, Grand Lec- 
turer, Grand Vice-President, and Past Grand President, and is President of N. 
S. G. W. Hall Association and President of the Golden West Publishing As- 
sociation, Director of the Library Association, N. S.G. W.; Chairman 01 Fi- 

nance Committee. Grand Parlor, 1888 ; member of G. A. M. Winn Monument 
Fund, and Historian of this N. S. G. W. He is a member of Mission Lodge, No. 
1(59, F. and A. M.. California Chapter, No. 5, R. A. M., and Knights of Kadosh,

ber Unity Lodge 61. K. of P., and Director of K. of P. Hall Association. In 
Golden State Court, No. 7495, A. O. F., lie holds membership ; in the Olym- 
pic Club and several social, financial and benevolent institutions. 

His association with the great fraternal and beneficiary orders in leading 
official positions is larger than any other native Californian, or of one of his 
age in this State. He lias a high reputation in his profession, popular among 
his associates, and liis tact, ability, and large experience warrant him leader- 
ship and continued usefulness in society, and fraternal and beneficiary orders. 

The growing pride among our Native Sons in this great commonwealth, 
and the men who have been selected as leaders, liave given them a prestige 
and place at home and abroad equal to any association of men, and highly 
complimentary to them individually.

The subject of our sketch was born iu Yolo County, California, in 1854, 
a7id has had a continuous residence at the same place. He is a graduate of 
Hesperian College, Woodland, and lias taught school, practiced law, served as 
District Attorney for two terms, and Superior Judge of Yolo County for sever- 
al years, and is now serving as Superior Judge for that county. In 1885 lie 
was unanimously elected Grand President of the Native Sons of the Golden 
West, and his tact and administrative ability as the cliief executive officer 

gave him a prominence and popularity all over the State. He is also a mem- 
ber of Woodland Lodge, No. 11, I. O. O. F. 

The life and career of Judge Garoutte fittingly illustrate the caliber of 
our Native Sons who have proved themselves " worthy sons of honored sires." 
During his service as Superior Judge (being the youngest one ever elected iu 
this State) his decisions have been marked by careful analysis, deep research, 
and correct judgment. During the last five years a number of our Native Sons 
have been elected and filled official positions of trust and honor, and in every 
instance they have acquited themselves with credit. Patriotism and a high 
appreciation of their inheritance has intensified their love for this common- 
wealth, and it is but a laudable ambition to serve their golden State and win 
greater honors, which now seems to be among the probabilities in the near

Graiul President N. S. G. W. 

The argonauts of California have created an Empire ; the golden State has 
reared men. Of that class of native-born Californians, who by birth, descent, 
and education, the Grand President of tlie Grand Parlor of California is a typ- 
ical representative of our honored pioneers. Opportunity, climate and asso- 
ciation have developed a race of men mentally and physically, who are the 
peers of any nation. 

Bro. Dorn was born in Los Angeles county in 1857, educated in the pub- 
lic schools, entered the University of California in 1875, and graduated in 
1879 with honor. He was commencement speaker and class historian at that 
time, and took the Past Graduate degree of A. M. for the University of Cali- 

fornia in 1882 ; entered Hastings' Law College in 1879, and received his di- 
ploma as Attorney at Law in 1882, having the honor again of being commence- 
ment speaker. He is now one of the firm of Dorn & Dorn, brothers, enjoying 
a large and lucrative business. He joined Pacific Parlor No. 10, was elecred 
Grand Lecturer in 1883, President of Board of Grand Trustees in 1885, re-elect- 
ed in 1886, unanimously elected Grand Vice President in 1887, and again unan- 
imously elected Grand President in 1888, which position he is lilling with cred- 
it. He is a Past Master of Mission Lodge 169, F. and A. M., and member of 
Golden Gate Chapter, Knights Templar. He is also a member of Yerba Bue- 
na Lodge, I. O. O. F., and Past Chancellor in the Knights of Pythias. 

He has a fine address, martial bearing, and is an eloquent and brilliant 
speaker. His scholastic attainments, social standing and ripe experience at 
the age of .30 years in fraternal orders, warrant us in predicting a successful 
administration as the Chief Executive of the Native Sons of the Golden West, 
and a bright future as a leader among men.

Grand Secretary of tlie Native Sons of the Golden West. 

Henry Lunstedt, the present Grand Secretary of the N. S. G. W., was born 
in OUT Tuolumne. He was educated at tlie public schools of San Francisco, 
but liis intellectual stature is not to be gauged by the mere op])ortuuities of 
the school-room. Brother Lunstedt is a man, who for mental breadth and 
real attainments, stands in tlie foremost ranks of the Order. His informa- 
tion is liberal, substantial, and upon a variety of subjects. He enjoys large 
literary acquirements, which he cultivates conscientiously and carefully. He 
is an able speaker, a forcii)le and ready debater, and a foeman in honorable 
controversy, written or uttered, worthy of prime steel. But Brother Lunstedt 
is something more than a man of books, he is a man of action. From opening 
manhood he has manifested a predilection for public life. He is one of the 

pioneers and founders of the Native Sons of the Golden West. Of him it may 
be said, in adoption of the sentiment of the Trojan JEneas, that in the toils 
and struggles of the Order he has borne a great part. To his endeavors in the 
past the Order is sensibly indebted for its present position. In his abiding 
loyalty to its cause may be read a hopeful augury for its future. As a Grand 
Secretary — filling the office for six terms — he has impressed upon the Order a 
sense of his peculiar ability and aptitude for the post. Moreover he has had the 
honor of sitting in every Grand Parlor that has convened, and was for a time 
Grand Lecturer. He is thoroughly familiar with the legislation of the Order, 
is a recognized authority on all matters of law and practice pertaining to it, 
and it is not too much to say that his acquaintance with the personnel of the 
Order is more complete than that of any man in it. He is besides a member 
of other fraternal Orders, and was with Henry C. Larghrer the first of the Na- 
tive Sons upon whom the Thirty-second degree of Scottish Rite Masonry was 
conferred. Such men are the vital spirit of organizations. From them as 
from a seminal center radiate out influences for power and increase and sta- 
bility. To them must be vouchsafed the rewards, as upon them must rest the 
solicitudes, which go with the leaderships of the world.

fornia in 1852, and lias occupied official positions almost continuously since ; 
during that time has been a Justice of the Peace, Deputy County Recorder, 
Deputy County Clerk, Register of the U. S. Land Office, Judge of the Supe- 
rior Court for eight years, and is thelpresent incumbent. He joined the Order 
of Odd Fellows in April, 1855, and is now a member of Shasta Lodge, No. 57, 

and is also a member of the " Veteran Association " of this State. He joined 
the Ancient Order of United Workmen in December, 1878, and was one of 
the charter members of Shasta Lodge. He became also one of the charter 
members of Shasta Council, No. 582, of the American Legion of Honor, May, 
18, 1881. He was elected Grand Vice Commander for California in 1882, and 
Grand Commander for the State in April, 1883, serving two terms. His course 
since he became Judge, the impartiality and fairness which mark his judi- 
cial decisions on the bench, his untiring attention to all the duties of his higli 
office, his courtesy and kindness to his brother attorneys, have won for him 
the respect and admiration of all. He is a vigorous and strictly temperate 
man, a diligent and ripe scholar, possessing an even and unruffled temper, 
courteous in his demeanor, the friend of the poor and needy — ever ready to do 
good to his fellow-man. In his conversation he is pleasing, agreeable, frank 
and candid — in fine, he is one of nature's true noblemen.

We are informed by tradition that Free Masonry had its origin at the 
building of King Solomon's Temple. It is claimed by others that it antedates 
this memorable event in history. Without speculating as to its origin or an- 
tiquity, that it is the oldest fraternal society, iiaving a greater universality 
tlian any other, there is but little room for doubt. It luis survived nations, dy- 
nasties and kingdoms ; and among the enlightened and civilized nations of 
the world it has grown in popularity, and seems entrenched in the liearts of 
the peojjle as the grandest fratt^rnal order in the universe. The Pope in the 
Vatican and the peasant have met at the same shrine, while king and plebiau 
have formed the sacred circle arouiul tlie altar of Free Masonry. Kings, po- 
tentates and emperors have worn the lamb'.s-skin apron as members of the 
craft in tlie lodge-room, while the humble mechanic has presided in the East 
as Worshipful iMaster. 

The late Emperor of Germany and George Washington were Masons, and 
«acli has left a record of his labors and devotion to tlie craft. Whilst it is not in 
a strict sense a charitable order, benevolence and aid to the sick and distres.sed 
are features that have crystallized into relief committees, orphan asylums, 
and masonic homes for the aged and indigent, that it has become a great bu- 
mauitarian society. Masonry seeks no proselytes, and those who pass the por- 
tals of the lodge-room enter of their own '" free will and accord." 

If the question was asked : Wliere does masonry exist, it could be perti- 
nently answered, Where cannot it be found? Its cardinal principle is a firm 
belief in the existence of God, the Maker, only Supreme Ruler of the universe, 
and on this foundation rock it will exist until time shall be no more, and the 
earth shall be gathered together as a scroll.

Grand Secretary A. L. of H. 

The pioneers of our State, who liad the opportunity of knowing wliat the 
fraternal organizations did for the distressed at that time, were deeplj' im- 
pressed, and as a rule liave devoted a large portion of tlieir time in fostering 
and extending their beneficence. A striking example of this experience is 
found ill tlie career of Bro. Burton. In 1852, he was elected a member of Charity 

Lodge, lS!o. G, I. O. O. F., at Stockton, elected Noble Grand and Chief Patri- 
arcli; is a member of the Grand Encampment, and has served as Grand Master 
one year. He is a P. M. W. of Valley, No. 30, A. O. U. W.; and was one of 
the chief organizers of Washington Council 480, American Legion of Honor, 
and First Commander and Representative to the Grand Council. He has 
served as Graud Secretary of the American Legion of Honor for several years 
with signal ability He brought to this important official position the varied 
and ripe experience he had acquired in other orders, and has been one of the 
chief factors in building up this growing order on the Pacific Coast. Bro. 
Burton is in the prime of life, suri'ounded by a very interesting family, one 
of the stewards of the M. E. Church, and one of the prominent leaders in fra- 
ternal and beneficiary societies.

J. TV. TVARD, Jr., 

Grand Secretary United Eiulownient Associates. 

In tlie character, life, and career of Brother Ward, Jr., we see a line type 
of a progressive American citizen. Educated in tlie Boston Englisli High 
School, under the instruction of Prof. Thomas Sherwin, he has been farmer, 
mercliant, County Clerk of Napa County, and is now a lawyer. He is Past 
Grand Dictator Knights of Honor, Past Grand I. O. O. F., and Past Master 
Workman A. O. U. "W. The principle of co-operative and fraternal life insur- 
ance has engaged his attention, and to which he has given much thought. Four 

years ago he, in conjunction with Dr. Hostetler, founded the United Endow- 
ment Associates. The distinctive features of tliis beneficiary society were 
the subject of ridicule among other leading organizations, and especially old 
line insurance companies. He was their first executive officer, prepared the 
ritual, and in fact carried the order on his shoulders for the first two years. He 
was the discoverer and founder of the United Endowment Associates, and by 
his tact, ability, and arduous labor in behalf of this growing organization, it 
bids fair to grow in numbers far beyond many of the older orders. The growtb 
and development of the United Endowment Associates has been his especial 
pride, and to which, although in actual practice as an attorney atilaw, he has- 
devoted a great deal of time and labor. He is a man of candor, possessing the 
confidence of those who know him best, esteem him the highest, and is welL 
calculated to hold out well in all his undertakings.

Grand Treasurer United Endowment Associates. 

In everj' community some person is selected as a custodian for moneys, 
■svho bv education and character is worthy of such trust. 

This policy has been practiced in beneficiary societies. The subject ot 
this sketch occupies the position of Grand Treasurer in a greater number ot 
fraternal and beneficiary societies than any one in this State. At the age ot 
seven years he emigrated to this State, in 185'2. He has held the position of 
bank teller in five different banks, and now is engaged as such in the Anglo- 
Californian Bank, one of the largest on the Pacific Coast. He is a member ot 

California No. 1, F. and A. M.; Past Master AVorkman of Fidelity 136, A. O. 
U. W.; and Treasurer and Director of the Workman's Guarantee Fund. At 
the formation of the Grand Lodge U. E. A., he was elected Grand Treasurer, 
in 1884, and is the present incumbent. He is Grand Treasurer of the United 
Order of Honor; Treasurer of the Pacific Endowment League; Supreme Treas- 
urer of the League of the Pacific; Custodian for the funds of several benevo- 
lent organizations; and Trustee for a large number of minors and individuals. 
Bro. Belden is a fine type of an American banker, courteous, affable and in- 
flexible in following a rule of action that is just and liberal. His position and 
connection with our largest banking institutions has enabled him on divers 
occasions to grant accommodation to our wards and beneficiaries that was 
fraternal generosity. Our engraving is a striking likeness of one of our lead- 
ing society men, who has done signal service in building up several of our 
leading humantarian societies.

pushing and enterprising Secretary of the State Board of Trade. In the coun- 
try of his birth, North Wales, he began the struggle of life under circumstanc- 
es that require pluck, energy, and indomitable will to succeed. 

His occupation has been scliool teacher, telegraph reporter, and for along 
time general agent for the Chicago and Northwestern Railroad Company on 
the Pacific Coast. He has been identified with local enterprises, and is al- 
ways found in the lead, moulding, guiding and organizing.

As a leading spirit in the Board of Trade he has rendered great seryice in 
advancing the interests of the Pacific Coast.

Supreme Representative of the Supreme Lod?e of the World. 

There are men in every community who become leaders in society by com- 
mon consent. Such has been the career of Col. E. T. Blackmar. The com- 
manding form, genial nature and high intellectuality which he posseses give 
him au influence and attraction among his associates seldom seen. His Pythian 
history dates from 1871, when he was made a Knight in Welcome Lodge, No. 
1. Chicago. In 73 he became a charter member, and first Chancellor Com- 
mander of Imperial T-odge, Chicago. He has taken a deep interest in Pythi-, and was largely instrumental in forming San Diego Lodge, No. 28. In 

1876 he was elected Grand Prelate, and advanced each session to Grand Vice 
Chancellor and Grand Chancellor. In 1880 he was elected Supreme Represen- 
tative, and elected again in 1886 for four years, commencing, January, 1888. lu 
October, 1883, Chevalier, No. 6, of the Uniform Kank, was instituted in San 
Diego, and he was elected first Lieutenant Commander, and the following year 
Sir Knight Commander. 

In October, 1886, he was elected Colonel of the Third Regiment of the Cali- 
fornia Brigade. Brother Blackmar is a member of the Endowment Rank, 
Sectipn No. 70, and has acted as Secretary and Treasurer for a number of years. 
He is also a member of San Diego Lodge, No. 35, F. and A. M., San Diego 
Chapter, No. 63, Loyal Legion of Coramauderv, and Heintzelman Post, No. 
33, G. A. R. 

He has led an active life, and although 57 years of age he has an elastic 
step, and vigor that will warrant many years of service in the building up 
of society.

Past Grand Commander. 

A striking example of push, perseverance, and tenacity of purpose is 
shown in the life and career of Stanton L. Carter. By his own exertions he 
has placed himself in the front rank as one of the leading attorneys at law in 
this State, at the age of 35 years. After graduating at the High School he at- 
tended Heald's Business College, for the purpose of fitting himself for a mer- 
cantile career. Soon after lie commenced to read law, and within two years 
was admitted to practice. He filled the office of City Attorney for Stockton 
for three terms with signal ability and success. He was made a Knight in 

1876 at the institution of Centennial Lodge, No. 38, K. of P., of which he was 
a charter member, and was appointed Inside Guard the same evening be re- 
ceived the Knight Rank, and served successively as Master at Arms, Vice 
Chancellor, Chancellor Commander, and Past Chancellor. In 1880 he was 
elected a Representative, and served in that capacity continuously until his 
election to the office of Grand Chancellor in 1884, and has since represented 
his Lodge in the Grand Lodge. Immediately upon his admission to the 
Grand Lodge he was appointed Chairman of the Committee on Law and 
Supervision, and served upon that committee until his election as G. C„ 
and is now a member of the Committee on Appeals and Grievances. His 
thorough knowledge of Pythian laws caused him to be unanimously se- 
lected by the Grand Lodge of 1887, to prepare and compile a Pythian Digest. 
This work is replete and carefully revised; containing all decisions of impor- 
tance since the introduction of the order in this State, and -has been pro- 
nounced by experts in Pythian law one of the best compilations ever issued.

Tlie rise, progress and growth of the I. O. O. F. in the United States is one 
of tlie grandest acliieveinents in tlie liistory of fraternal and l)eneficiary socie- 
ties. In 1804 Thomas Wildey, John Welch. John Duncan, Jolin Clieatem, and 
liichard Ruohworth, members of tlie Mancliester Unity, established "NVasliing- 
ton, No. 1, at Baltimore, and tlie " corner-stone laid for that mystic and beau- 
tiful temple which now challenges the admiration of the world." In 1842, the 
American membership formally seceded from the Manchester Unity, and de- 
clared itself the Independent Order of Odd Fellows throughout the world. At 
that time there were 265 lodges, with 24,000 members ; now, at the end of for- 
ty-six years, there is a Sovereign Grand Lodge, two Independent Grand Lodges 
(German Empire and Australasia), 47 Grand Encampments, 65 Grand Lodges, 
2,070 Subordinate Encampments, and 8,487 Subordinate Lodges. Encamp- 
ment Members 205,000, Lodge Members in good standing, 500,000, annual rev- 
enue $5,700,000, annual relief 82,300,000, total relief 846,000,000, now in tlie 
treasury .8()0,000,000. As an adjunct the Rebekah degree, to which woman is

California has 310 lodges and 25,000 members; total assets . 82,100,000; re- 
lief fund 8220,000; revenue 8470,000 annually. The I. O. O. F. is strictly a 
beneficiary Order, and the vast sums expended to relieve the sick and dis- 
tressed are not given as a charity, but as a payment of what is due and earned 
in the days and years that have elapsed while they are members.

Past Grand Chancellor. 
The subject of our sketch is a native of INIaine. His early life was spent 
in the wild lumber region of New England; entered Waterville College at an 
early age, and graduated with honor in 1858. His i)rofessiou as Attorney-at- 
law has been confined to intricate laud cases requiring deep research and log- 
ical reasoning, in whicli lie has been eminentlj^ successful. Schooled in the 
rough elements of a new country his life has been one of active and continued 
labor in his profession and industrial enterprises, j)romiuent among which was 
establishing a great fruit orchard of 350 acres at Sunol Glen, liis present resi- 

He is a member of F. and A.M., and Past Grand Chancellor of the Knights 
of Pytliias. During his term of office it required tact, firmness, and consum- 
mate skill to preserve this noble Order from a factious quarrel and strife. He 
proved himself worthy of thi.s trust, and at the close of his administration har- 
mony had taken the place of discord, and the Knights of Pythias were in a 
prosperous condition. He is genial, affable, and courteous to every one with 
whom he comes in contact, and is possessed of that clear intellect and cool- 
ness of judgment and self-reliance that makes him a safe leader in times of 
f:reat excitement. He makes up his mind what course is right, and neither 
riends nor foes can change liim from it. Perseverance and tenacity are lead- 
ing traits in his character, and to this he owes his successful career in busi- 
ness and society affairs. Blessed in his marital relations, honored and es- 
teemed, he is now enjoying life in his luxurious home at Sunol Glen, in strik- 
ing contrast with bis arduous labors in early life.

Grand Secretary I. O. S. T. 

There is no man in this State occupying a more prominent position in 
fraternal and beneficiary orders than the subject of our sketch. He has been 
closely identified with the Knights of Pythias, and is a Past Grand Chancellor. 

He is also a member of the I. O. O. F., Improved O. E. M., A. O. U. W., 
and the I. O. G. T., liaving promptly "passed the chairs" in each. He is a 
member of the several Grand Lodges and has been a representative to the 
Grand Lodge in each order. He is chairman of one of the most important 
committees of the Grand Lodge, A. O. U. W., and is a past Great Sachem of 
the Improved O. R. M. 

His chief fraternal labors, however, have been in behalf of the I. O. G. T., 
with which he has been connected for more than twenty years, and in which 
he rose to the proud distinction of E. W. G. T. — the presiding officer of the Su- 
preme Lodge of the world — and to which he was thrice elected at Topeka, 
Kansas, Charleston, S. C, and Chicago, 111., declining a re-election last year 
at Washington, D. C. 

At present he is the Grand Secretary of the I. O. G. T. of this State, and 
his influence on that order can never be fully appreciated and comprehended, 
under his guidance the order having nearly tripled in membership, and quad- 
rupled in finances. 

He is a methodical man and a pains-taker, and would for that reason be 
classed by Carlyle as a "geniu."*. " He has a clear insight and general com- 
prehension of things, which enables him to do the proper thing at the proper 
time. In all society letters he is a master of the situation. You can hardly 
conceive a mind better fitted for the numerous emergencies that arise in the 
fraternal organizations than that of Geo. B. Katzenstein.

Califoruia is a favorite State for societies, and her native sons, by educa- 
tion and association, naturally drift into tliese orders at an early age. Lieu- 
tenant Bovee is a tine specimen of a native Calif ornian, genial, frank and gen- 
erous. He lias been prominent as a chief executive, and active and earnest 
worker in several organizations. The Kniglits of Pythias, as an order, has a 

strong attachment for him, and the semi-military adjunct, or Uniform Rank, 
is his special pride. 

His society record is made up of a membership in Justice Lodge, No. 85, K. 
of P., Justice Division, Uniform Eank, K. of P., No. 20, and Treasurer of the 
same since its organization ; Past Officer in the Ancient Order of Foresters 
and United Endowment Associates ; also an active member of A. O. U. AV., 
American Legion of Honor, and the NatiA^e Sons of the Golden West. Although 
he is a young man, under 30 years of age, he has been a leading broker in real 
estate, and is now associated with the iirm of Bovee, Toy &. Co., Real Estate

Supreme Representative. 
There are but few men better known in society life than Fred. W. Bell. In 
all of the fraternal and beneficiary- societies of which he is a member, he has 
held the chief executive position, and for the last ten years been crowded with 
official duties. He has been a close student, and is a graduate of a local college 
of his native State, Kentucky. His guardians, an uncle and aunt, aided him in 
his studies for a Presbyterian minister. Tlieir death, before he had finished his 
theological course, threw him on his own resources, and forced him to abandon 

the profession he had chosen. He arrived in San Francisco in 1860, and has 
been in turn clerk, merchant, Court Reporter, and member of the Legislature 
for Idaho. His home is now at Eureka, Humboldt County, and one of the 
leading real estate brokers and prominent citizens of that section. 

For a number of years, Brother Bell has been a zealous member of the or- 
der of Knights of Pythias, and noted as a hard worker, both in the subordi- 
nate and grand lodges. At the session of the Grand Lodge, held in San Fran- 
cisco in April, 1883, he was rewarded for his fidelity to the principles of our 
noble order by being elected Grand Chancellor. During his term of office he 
succeeded in adding 2,000 to the membershii) in California. He took his seat 
as a Supreme Representative at tlie Toronto session, and will also represent 
California at Cincinnati this year. He is also prominent in the A. O. U. W., 
I. O. O. F., and Order of Chosen Friends. He is married and has one child 
living, his domestic relations being of the happiest.

The life of C. W. Nevin is a striking example of push, industry and perse- 
verance. Commencing at an early age the battle of life, he has passed through 
adversity and vicissitude, steadily advancing until he has amassed wealth, 
gained honor and esteem, and is now a leading business man and proprietor 
of a large printing house. He was born in Iowa in 1849, received a common 
school education, and at the age of fourteen years left home and parents. At 
the age of sixteen years found him in California, a " devil boy " in a printing 
office in the country. He served as an apprentice on the " San Francisco 
Examiner " two years, and eight years with Francis & Valentine, and be- 
came master in the art. 

He joined Myrtle Lodge, Knights of Pythias, served in all the chairs, was 
elected Grand Representative in 1882, and has been re-elected each year to that 
position, and served on various committees in the Grand Lodge, being Chair- 
man on Laws and Supervision for 1887. In 1882 lie was elected Vice-President 

of the K. of P. Library, and the following month was elected President, and 
has served in that capacity since. 

To his tact and administrative ability the success of Knights of Pythias 
Library (one of the best in the State) is largely due. He is now Deputy of 
District No. 4. In 1882 he became a charter member of Memorial Lodge, 174, 
A. O. U.W., passed the chairs, was elected a Grand Representative for several 
terms, and District Deputy one year. He became a member of California 
Lodge, No. 12, B. P. O., Elko, served in various official positions, became a 
member of the Grand I-odge, by service, and is now Treasurer of the two con- 
solidated Lodges— Golden Gate, No. fi. In 1885 he took a leading part in form- 
ing Memorial Lodge, No. 6, United Endowment Associates, was the pre- 
siding officer, and first Representative to the Grand Lodge. He is also a 
member of the Workman's Guarantee Fund, and several other benevolent 

In his association with tliese benevolent orders he has been selected as a 
Counsellor and leader, and there is no per.son who has more influence among 
his fraters. Blessed in his marital relations, highly respected among his asso- 
ciates, his life and career has been one of usefulness and benefit to his fellow-

The pioneers of California will ever be held in highest esteem as a band 
of heroes. The subject of our sketch visited the Pacific Coast in 1816, and 
again in 1849. Like most of the pioneers he followed various pursuits; min- 
ing in different jiortions of the State, Sheriff, fighting Indians and Mormons at 
the time of the Mountain Meadow Massacre. In the year 1858 he settled in 
San Francisco, and has since been practicing his profession as a dentist. Dur- 


ing all these years he has taken great interest in fraternal societies and benev- 
olent orders. He organized the Portuguese Protective Association, and was 
one of the founders of the Portuguese Union of Alameda County. Dr. Mor- 
ton holds a membership in the I. O. O. F., Red Men, Knights of Pythias, Pio- 
neers, and Ancient Order of Druids. During the year 1885 he held the posi- 
tion of Dejiuty Grand Arch, and was honored with an election in 1886 as Noble 
Grand Arch for this jurisdiction. His record as an executive officer, and the 
devotion and zeal displayed during his incumbency was shown by the increase 
of new Groves, and membership, and general growth and prosperity of the 
Order. Bro. Morton has been liberally educated, and is familiar with the lead- 
ing languages, and has acted as interpreter in the early part of his life for a 
livelihood. His life has been full of romance, adventure and unrequited ser- 
vice to his fellow men.

Grand Secretary of the Order Eastern Star. 

As a representative fraternal woman of the Pacific Coast, the subject of 
this sketch stands pre-eminent. Coming to this State in early childhood, she 
is by training and education a thorough Californian, and identified with Cali- 
fornian institutions and interests. 

She was initiated in Golden Gate Chapter, No. 1, O. K. S., of San Francis- 
co, in January, 1871. Removing to Vallejo she affiliated with Silver Star 
Chapter, No. 3, of that place, and served two terms as Worthy Matron. When 
a convention was called in April, 1873, for the purpose of organizing a Grand 
Chapter for the State of California, Mrs. Willats was sent as delegate from 
the Vallejo Chapter, and has attended every session of the Grand Chapter 

since its organization in May, 1873. She was the first Grand Lecturess of the 
Order for the State of California, and has been successively Grand Conduc- 
tress and Grand Treasurer. In 1882 she was elected Grand Secretary on the 
first ballot by a flattering majority. In 1883 she was unanimously re-elected 
by a ballot said to be the most complimentary ever given to an officer 
of the Grand Chapter in this State, and has been re-elected by accla- 
mation every year since then, filling the office at the present time in a most 
creditable and satisfactory manner. 

Mrs. Willats is also an officer of the Grand Council, American Legion of 
Honor; a Past Grand officer of the Grand Council of Chosen Friends: Chair- 
man of the Finance Committee of Grand Lodge United Endowment Associa- 
tion; Past Commander of Kismet Lodge, No. 25, Legion of the West; Secre- 
tary of the Home Mutual Endowment Association of California; a member of 
Lincoln Corps, W. R. C. ; was a member of Aurora Lodge, Knights and Ladies 
of Honor; and has been Secretary of Golden Gate Chapter for five years, she 
having returned to San Francisco and re-united with the mother Chapter in 
1879. Slie is one of the most tireless and indefatigable fraternal workers in

Past CoininanUer. 

The wonderful development of the Pacific Coast has enlisted our best in- 
tellect in our commercial enterprises and shipping interests. Prominent among 
those who have occupied a leading position as a sliipper and wholesale Com- 
mission Merchant in cereals, fruit and produce is the subject of our sketch. 
He was born in 1845, came to California in 1854, spent his boyhood days on a 
farm, and laid the foundation for a robust constitution and power of endur- 
ance that has helped him in his ordinary and eventful life. In 18GG he com- 
menced his successful career as a produce commission merchant, and has fol- 
lowed continuously his chosen occupation in the same place. In 1885 a young- 
er brother, Mr. T. B. Dalton, was admitted, which constitutes the firm of Dal- 
ton Bros. Frank Dalton is now President of the Merchants' Exchange of 
San Francisco, President of the Produce Exchange of San Francisco, and Pres- 
ident of the San Francisco Call Board Association ; a larger number of oflScial 
positions of trust than has ever been held by one person at one time in the his- 
tory of this great commercial metropolis. Although he led an active life as a 
merchant, our fraternal orders have been promoted by his labor, influence and 
membership. He joined California Lodge F. and A. M. in 1872, Golden Gate Com- 
mandery K. T. in 1882, and served as Eminent Commander in 1887. He is also 
a member of St. John Lodge, No. 73, A. O. U. W., Friendship Lodge, Knights 
of Honor, and several benevolent and social organizations. 

He is genial, unostentatious and generous. A man of few words, sound 
judgment, sensitive nature, and keen intellect ; his great influence among his 
associates has been gained by strict integrity and unwavering rectitude in ad- 
versity and prosperity. Blessed in his family associations, esteemed among 
men, honored with responsible official positions, his career in life has been one 
of usefulness, and a model of enlightened American citizenship. 


District Grand Secretary, A. O. F. of Cal. 

Bro. C. H. Bremer was born in Germany, April 10, 1864. He graduated from 
the Alameda High School May 21, 1881, joined Court Pacific No. 7115, A. O. F., 
Feb. 4th, 1885, held the office of F. S. in July, 1886, was also elected C. K. 
Bro. Bremer is looked upon as a man whose devotion to principle, fair play 
and generous impulses entitle him to the honors he has received as a citizen, 
and the affectionate regard in which he is held as a brother. He is also a 
member of S. F. Lodge, No. 1., Order of Hermann Sons, and honorary mem- 
ber and Dist. Deputy of Court Harmonic, 7547, A. O. F. The A. O. F. have 
selected the right man in the right place: the rapid strides which the order 
is taking reflect great credit upon its executive officers.

Grand Cotumandcr Select Knights. 

The triumphs of peace are signally illustrated in the career of men. Mr. 
Carothers for a number of years has given a large portion of his time and la- 
bor in promoting and enlarging our great beneficial and fraternal organiza- 
tions, although for the last fifteen years he has been the chief baggage master 
of the C. P. R. R. He was born in Washington, D. C; came to California in 
1855, and was a farmer and dairyman until he accepted his present position. 
He is a prominent member of I. O. O. F. and Oakland Encampment. 

He was a charter member and P. M. W. of Occidental, No. 6, A. O. U. W., 
and Past Commander of Upchurch Legion, No. 9, Select Knights, and also a 
member of Ivanhoe Lodge, Knights of Honor. He served as Grand Vice 
Commander of Select Knights, and at their last convention was unanimously 
elected Grand Commander S. K. He has been selected a " City Father," and 
for three consecutive terms been elected a member of the City Council of Oak- 
laud. Bro. Caruthers is a fine type of manhood, a born leader, unblemished 
character, and a man of sterling worth. Modest and unassuming, his accep- 
tance of offices has been at the earnest solicitation of his associates.

The founder of the Ancient Order of United Workmen was J. J. Up- 
church, a poor mechanic, who sought to establish a co-operative society or or- 
der that would bring employer and employee in closer and more cordial 
relations. To carry out this policy, and establish fraternal relations^ 
each member agreed to give the amount or proceeds of one day's labor to a de- 
ceased member's widow. That beneficiary feature, commenced 19 years ago in 
the town of Meadville, Penn., was the stepping stone of this great beneficiary 
order, now numbering over 200,000 members. It provided that all white male 
persons over 21 and under 50 years of age were eligible to membership. The 
first payment on a policy was less than $300. Since that time millions of dol- 
lars have been paid to the widows and orphans of deceased members, at the 
rate of ^2,000 on each certificate. It is the largest beneficiary order, as it was 
the first established that had fraternal relations with an organized system of 
charity. A significant feature of this order is its cosmopolitan character, and 
a membership recruited largely from the old fraternal orders. This order has 
had a phenomenal growth in Calit'ornia. numbering now 18.000 members.

" The Society of Native Sons of the Golden West " was organized for the 
mutual benefit, ijiental improvement and social intercourse of its members ; 
to perpetuate in the minds of all native Californians the memories of one of 
the most wonderful epochs in the world's history — " the days of '49"; to unite 
them in one harmonious body throughout the State, by ties of a friendship 
mutually beneficial to all, and unalloyed by the bitterness of i-eligious or po- 
litical differences, the discussion of which is urgently forbidden in its meet- 
ings; to elevate and cultivate the mental faculties; to rejoice with one another 
in prosperity; and to extend the good Samaritan hand in adversity. 

" The members must bear a good reputation for sobriety and industry; 
they must follow some respectable calling by which to make a living, and as a 
vital i^rinciple of the association, it encourages temperance among its mem- 
bers, and recommends total abstinence from ail intoxicating drinks." 

None are eligible except native Californians, born since July 1, 1846. All 
applicants must be over eighteen years of age.

Grand Commander. 

The fraternal orders, co-operative societies and beneficiary organizations 
have enlisted the services and influence of a large number of our leading mer- 
chants and manufacturers. Of this class, the subject of this sketch has taken 
an active part, and been prominently identified as a leader, in several of the 
great fraternal and beneficiary orders of our country. His high qualifications 
and successful career as a business man; his open, frank and genial ways; 
his extensive acquaintance, happy pose of mind, and executive ability have 
given him a popularity seldom accorded to a person who has been actively 
engaged in a commercial vocation. 

In his appreciated labors for his co-workers he has persistently advocated 
a policy of liberal, just and uncompromising business principles, in building 
up these co-operative and beneficiary associations. His s})eecbes and ad- 
dresses are characterized by plain, concise and exhaustive statements of tlie 
subject matter, without any attempt at eloquence or oratorical efforts. 

He has been a wise counselor, sagacious and clear-headed. His adminis- 
tration- as the Chief Executive of the American Legion of Honor has been one 

ef fidelity, popularity and unqualified success. He was born in Rochester, 
N. Y., in 1840; educated in the public schools, and commenced life as a " sail- 
or boy," arriving in San Francisco in 1858. He joined Grass Valley Lodge, 
No. 12, 1. O. O. F., in 1862; passed the chairs and was elected a Grand Represen- 
tative, in 1866; served three years as Marshal of the Veteran Odd Fellows' As- 
sociation, and is now one of the Directors. He helped to organize Burns Lodge, 
A. O. U. W., in 1878, and Olympic Lodge in 1879. and was elected Grand Repre- 
sentative for several terms. In 1880 he joined Bohemian Council, A. L. of H. , 
and was elected Grand Representative in 1883. 

In the Grand Council he has held the position of Grand Trustee, Grand 
Vice-Commander, and in 1887 was unanimously elected Grand Commander. 
He now holds the position of Grand Treasurer of tlie Legion of the West, and 
President of the Occidental Loan Association. He has been prominent in 
eivic affairs for a long time. He has held the position of U. S. Internal Rev- 
enue Collector, Assistant Clerk in the Assembly, Assistant Secretary of the 
Senate, Secretary of the Republican County Committee for three years, and 
is known as an active and sagacious worker in political affairs. 

In his domestic relations he has been highly blessed; in his business ca- 
reer a success; and his natural ability as a leader and counsellor in the frater- 
nal, political and monetary associations with which he has been connected 
has given him a large acquaintance and prominence all over the Pacific 
Coast and Eastern States.

This fraternal and beneficiary Order was instituted fifteen years ago. Its 
objects are as stated in their constitution : 

" 1. — To unite fraternally all acceptable white men of every iirofession, 
business and occupation. 

"2. — To give all possible moral and material aid in its power to its mem- 
bers, and those depending on its members, by holding moral, instructive and 
scientific lectures, by encouraging each other in business, and by assisting 
each other to obtain employment. 

" 3. — To promote benevolence and charity by establishing a Widows' and 
Orphans' Benefit Fund, from which by the satisfactory evidence of the death of 
a member of the Order, who has complied with all the lawful requirements, a 
sum not exceeding two thousand dollars, ($2,000) shall be paid to such mem- 
ber, or members of his family, or person or persons dependent on him, as he 
may designate." 

Having passed a medical examination, the petitioner must be a white 
male person, between the ages of eighteen and Hfty years, in order to be ad- 
mitted as a beneficiary member. 

Subordinate Lodges may provide by their by-laws for the payment of 
weekly sick benefits; but whether paying weekly sick benefits or not, it is 
their duty to look after their sick or disabled members. 

Since its institution, it has gathered together a membership of over one 
hundred and thirty thousand men, and has paid, without deducting a single 
penny for commissions or expenses, to eleven thousand widowed families, the 
sum of twenty-four millions of dollars. All moneys collected on assessments 
go directly to pay death losses, the expenses attendant on the collection and 
disbursement of the Widows' and Orphans' Benefit Fund being paid from 
money raised by the per capita tax, and from sale of supplies, thus keeping 
the Widows' and Orphans' Benefit Fund sacred to the purpose for which it is 
collected, namelj', the payment of death losses. 


Organized at LouisAille, Ky., under sjjecial enactment of the Legislature of 
the Commonwealth of Kentucky, iu tlie year 1873. Admits to membership 
between the ages of 18 and 50. Pays a death benefit of $2,000, or one half rate 
$1,000, at death, collected by assessment of $1 on the membership for full rate. 
Assessments graded after tlie age of 45. Widows and Orphans' Benefit Fund 
controlled by the Supreme Lodge.

The Order of Knights of Pythias was founded in the City of Washington. 
D. C, February 19, 1864. Justis H. Ratbbone, who wrote the ritual, holds 
the title of " Founder and Past Supreme Chancellor." During the late Civ- 
il War estrangements were engendered, passions aroused, and sectional strife 

184 Illustrated Fraternal Directory. 

and hatred were the promiueut characteristics of tliis period. It was the con- 
ception of the great philanthropic mind of the " Founder " and liis associates, 
to establish a fraternal and semi-military order, that would assuage the heat- 
ed passions and bind in the closest ties men who had felt the privations and 
pangs of war. 

Tlie story of Damon and Pythias, that has been handed down from ancient 
times, in which the ties of friendship were so strong that one will risk his life 
to save his friend, was the foundation, and three great cardinal principles of 
Friendship, Charity and Benevolence were tlie corner-stones on whicli this 
great benevolent institution rests. Weekly and funeral benefits are given, 
not as a charity, but as a right. There is a Uniform Rank connected with this 
order, which has become very popular, and which serves to keep the military 
spirit dominant, and enlist young men as members. In 1877 an Endowment 
Rank was established, which provides for the payment of a certain amount 
at death to the widow and orphan ornamed.legatee, in sums of ■1fl,000, 5S2,000, 
and .$.'5,000. 

It has had a marvellous growth, and now numbers 200,000 members, with 
16,000 in the Uniform Rank and 17,000 in the Endowment Rank. This order 
was introduced into California in 1869, and now has 140 lodges and a member- 
ship of over 10,000, with 1,.500 in the Uniform Rank. Its knightly character, 
close friendship, semi-military feature combine to attract, educate, and re- 
lieve the distressed and improve society. 

The declaration of principles adopted by the Supreme Lodge says, "Our 
noble Order was instituted to uplift the fallen, to champion humanity, to be 
his guide and hope, his refuge, shelter and defense, to soften down the asper- 
ities of life, to subdue party spirit, and by the sweet and powerful attractions 
of the glorious trinity of Friendship, Charity, and Benevolence, to bind in 
one harmonious brotherhood men of all classes and opinions."

Tim Unit(i(l Or(l<'i- of Honor is ;iii Order jKjs^essiiig stability, and is rapidly 
and surely increasing in nifiinlxjrsiiip. Its nicdioal (sxaiuinatioiis are most 
tliorough, and the fjrciatust iiossible care is exercised in the selection of mem- 
bers. Tlie Order lias standing, high character, and an assured bright future. 
Its financial condition is of the soundest, all dtiatli claims being paid promptly 
and I here are no back debts hanging over the Order to create distrust of 
its manag(!m(;nt. TIk; (leneral Fund of the (iraud Lodge is in a most flatter- 
ing condition. The Lodges are promjjt in paying their obligations, and the 
memliers equally prompt in paying their individual assessments, showing tliat 
tlio Order possesses the entire confidence of those who are now members. Dur- 
ing the year 1887 we have had but thirteen assessments in this jurisdiction, 
and have paid about $70, 000 to the widows and orphans of our members. 

The Lnited Order of Honor was organized at Indianapolis, Ind., on April 
26, 1881, with but fifty charter memliers, since which tiujc lodges have been 
organized in twenty-four States and Territories of the I'nion (excluding the 
yellow fever districts), also Canada and British Columbia, comprising a 
membership of nearly 30,000. It is universally acknowledged by the most com- 
petent judges to be tlie most refined, useful, inexpensive and progressive soci- 
ety in existence. Its rapid growth during the last three years, and its being 
indorsed by the best classes of citizens, prove beyond a doubt that it is des- 
tined to become one of the largest orders known. 


The United Order of Honor is a secret benevolent society— secret onh/ in the 
sense of being jn irate — having signs and passwords by wliich members can 
make themselves known, and be able to establish their claims for protection 
and assistance, should they happen to be in a strange place and in need. 

In arranging and compiling the Constitution and Laws of the Order, the or- 
ganizers had before them the laws of the most successful beneficiary societies 
then in existence, and embodied in the LTnited Order of Honor the best 
features of all, adding such new ones as were suggested by long experience in. 
and close observation of, the details and workings of like associations, and 
adopting, after close and thorough investigation, the Total Disability clause, 
and payment at 75 years. 

The distinctive features are briefly stated in the following 


1st. To unite for the purpose of promoting Industry, Morality and Charity, 
all acceptable white persons, of moral character, good habits, sound, both 
physically and mentally, and of a respectable calling, who believe in a Su- 
preme Being, the creator and preserver of the universe. 

2d. To improve the condition of its membership morally, socially and ma- 
terially, by timely counsel and instructive lessons, by encouragement in busi- 
ness, and by assistance to obtain employment when in need, and to provide 
for and comfort the sick and distressed members of the Order. 

3d. To establish a Mutual Aid Fund, from which members of this associa- 
tion who have complied with all its rules and regulations, or persons by such 
members lawfully designated, or the legal heirs of such members, may receive 
a benefit in a sum not exceeding three thousand dollars, which shall be paid 
either — 

1. When a member, by reason of his disease or accident, from following his 
or her usual or some other occupation, or while engaged in the performance of 
any reputable and legitimate business, becomes totally and permanently dis- 

2. Upon satisfactory evidence of the death of such member, when all the 
conditions regulating such payment to them by the Order have been fully 
complied with.

Tlie American Legion of Honor was founded in Boston in the year 1.S78. It s 
cbaracteristic features were graded assessments, admission of women on an 
equality witli men, and payment of sums ranging from SoOO to §5,000 to the 
families of deceased members or a legatee named who was a dependent. Since 
that time there has been established a weekly system of sick benefits, and a 
certain sum known as a funeral benefit. The incorporators were clear-headed 
men and one woman, who enacted and provided laws which were conserva- 
tive, yet explicit in making provisions for a good financial system, and estab- 
lishment of a system that would perpetuate the Order. All the safeguards 
for investment of a fund to be known as the Guarantee Fund have been made 
This fund is created by setting aside live per cent of all moneys collected on 
beneficiary assessments until the amount reaches $500,000. After that time 
anj^ sui'plus is divided pro rata among the members who have been paying as- 
sessments for a term of five years. This fund h'as already reaclied over $10,- 
000,000. It has been provided that a member can draw, in case of disability 
or sickness, one-fifth of the amount of his beneficiary certificate in weeklV 
stipends. Although but ten years old it has had a very prosperous career, 
and numbers 63,000 members; has paid out to 3,700 families over .$10,000,000, 
and on the 31st day of December, 1887, there were no claims for losses due 
and unpaid. 

The personnel of membership is equal to if not superior to any order in this 
country, and it is among the gratif jing results attained in enlisting a large num- 
ber of our leading citizens as beneficiary and honorary members. Its name, 
system of government and finance, as well as its humane and liberal provis- 
ions in assisting the sick, have given it a popularity and attraction that seems 
to warrant its perpetuity and future usefulness.

Illustrated Fraternal Directory. 


Tlio anti(iuit,y of Forestry is not positively known. It is of record that 
Court No. 1, at Leeds, England, in 181."?, was tlic foundation of this great and 
powerful order. On the 4th, 5th, and (Jth of, IH'.M, there was a great 
delegate jneeting hold at Roehdale, when the following address was promul- 
gated by this Executive Council: " From this time henceforth the Order of 
Ancient Foresters will take the precedence of all similar institutions, and the 
members of the first Executive Council hope to see that day when the Order 
sliall lind the most eminent for virtue, piety, learning and lieroism of onr 
countrymen, and those who visit our shores, proud of being ranked among its 
members. To faithfu lly, honestly and zealously perform our duties, and to 
live in the esteem of our brethren, is our anxious hope; and we pray heaven to 
guide us aright and cause our brotherhood to flourish and be respected." 

Court Good Speed, No. 201, of the Ancient Order of Royal Foresters, was 
established in 1830, in Philadelphia, and admitted as a Subsidiary Court of the 
Ancient Order of Foresters in 183G. The U. S. Subsidiary Court was formed 
December 29th, 1874. Of the forty-three courts in existence at that time, one 
of these, Court Robin Hood, No. 5931, is held in San Francisco. The condi- 
tions of membership are " no person shall be initiated into any Court who is 
under eighteen years of age or over forty-five (except as an honorary member) 
unless he be a white male, of good moral character, sound in liealth, free from 
disease, and a believer in a Supreme Being." There are several auxilliaries, 
viz: the Knights of Sherwood Forest, Uniformed; Circles which admit females 
known as Companions of the Forest, and Juvenile Societies to which Sons of 
Foresters are admitted. This order is now firmly established in 30 States and 
Territories of this Union, and the membership is increasing rapidly. It is a 
social, fraternal and beneficiary oi'der, having a system of sick benefits of a 
regular stipend per week, with medical attendance and medicines free. There 
is also an Endowment Fund, which can be taken at the option of a member 
divided into four classes of S500, .f 1,000, $1,500 and .$2,000. Forestry forms a 
conspicuous part of the higher civilization of the nineteenth century. Its an 
tiquity, its huge proportions, and close fraternal ties " in relieving distress, 
aiding the weak and comforting the mourner," have given it au establishment 
that will last while men are humane. There are 900,000 Foresters holding 
membership in all parts of the world, with a system of government that gives 
to the individual member equal riglits and privileges, and substantial recogni- 
tion under severe penalties from any Subsid iary Court wheresoever found.

It lias become ii sfttled fact that tlie ])ar- 
ainoiint iiiterost of tin; racitic Coast is fniit- 
raisinp;. I)urin}j tlie last deoatli! we liave 
deiutmstrated the adaptability of California 
in soil and climate, in growiiif^ not only the 
general frnits of the teniporat*! zone, but we 
are now fnrnisiiin}j a large jiroportion of 
semi-tropical fruits used in the Northern 
States, and sagacious men anticii)ate and 
predict that we shall become a dangerous 
competitor with France, Italy and Sicily, in 
growing the olive and lig as we now are in 
tlie vine. Anticipating a demand for young 
trees, an incorporated com]>any was formed 
by men of large means, and exi)erienced 
nurserymen, to establish a i)lant that could 
sup])ly nurser.v stock in unlimited amount. 
After a careful and full investigation, they 
selected 4l>0 acres of land lying between Al- 
ameda Creek and the C. P. II. R., one mile 
west of Niles, Alameda County. The writ- 
er recently made a visit to this nursery and a 
flying trip in and around IS'iles. From his 
notes and memoranda lie gives a succinct 
description : 

The California Nursery Company was 
started live years ago in a stubble field, with 
new and clean stock of every sort, importing 
roots and scions from reliable tirms in Eu- 
rope and the Eastern States. Their location 
is next to the foothills in tlie " warm belt," 
and adjacent to the wide-spreading tields of 
the Beet Sugar ]Manufacturing Company of 
Al varado. The soil is composed of alluvium 
and a liglit sandy loam. Its productiveness 
is attested in the marvelous growth of every 
variety of vegetation. From actual meas- 
urement, whole rows of cherry trees liad 
grown six and eight feet from the graft or 
bud in one season, and pear, peach and ap- 
ple stock from five to seven feet. Tliis thrif- 
ty growth was attained without irrigation, 
although this Company have facilities for 
running water over their land, if desired. 
Two large windmills and a steam pump on 
the high ground next to the Alameda creek 
could flood their present nursery (which is 
now planted 400 acres) in case of a severe 

It is a subject that gives food for thought 
when we contemplate the wouderftil change 
wrought by the managers of this company. 
Within 300 yards of the main oflice stands 
the adobe building where, 25 years ago, the 
vaquero rested from his labors in herding 
wild cattle and horses. 

Five years ago the husbandman was rais- 
ing grain to feed the overcrowded population 
of Europe. At this time the California Nur- 
sery Company has changed the whole aspect 
of this lovely valley and converted this spot 
into an Eden. Their plans were laid on a 
broad gauge and grand scale to fill the re- 
quirements of our market, extending from 
British Columbia to the Tropics, and from 
the Pacific Ocean to the Atlantic seaboard. 
No insect pest has been found in this nur- 
sery, and there are no adjacent orchards 
from which they could be propagated. The 
managers in selecting this locality took the 
precaution of isolating themselves from old 
orchards. The location of the grounds ex- 
tends one and one-half miles along the C. P. 
R. R. Co. 

d ill 

The perseverance and integrity of 
Company has been fully demonstrated 
th(! success of their five; years' experience, 
their shi|iments the i)ast season includin 
many large consignments to Australia, Chr 
na and .Japan. One of the large enterprise! 
of this Company, and which tTiej' entertai 
as being one f>f tlie coraitig industries of tliia 
State, is the Olive, of whi(;h thousands are 
now being propagated, thej' having import^ 
ed direct from Europe all of the new and 
leading varieties. 

The "Fig,", is being propagated 
to a large extent, embracing all of the best! 
varieties. Their line of ornamental stock is 
very larg eand complete. VVe call particu- 
lar attention to their fine .stock of palms, 
magnolia.s, bamboo and roses. Of the latter 
they liave ten acres now planted, which in- 
cludes all of the new and rare kinds lately 
introduced. In connection, they have a 
large rose specimen grounds, where during 
the season nearly all of the varieties grown 
can be seen in bloom. 

A specimen orchard is also on their 
grounds, which contains all tlie varieties of 
" Fruit " they otTer for sale, and can be seen 
during the fruiting season. 

Their descriptive Catalogue for the season 
1888 and 1889 is now being published, and 
will contain the lists and cuts of the differ- 
ent kinds of fruits, showing the latest and 
favorite varieties. This catalogue should be 
in the hands of every fruit grower, or any 
person who is about to become one. The ob- 
ject is to make it the Nursery of the Pacific 
Coast. To this end, the observations of life- 
long experience in the bvisiness, untiring en- 
ergy, coupled with every convenience which 
such experience or necessity may suggest, 
shall be devoted. 

As a matter of information to our readers 
as to the reliability of the California Nursery 
Company, we herewith give the names of 
the officers: Directors— John Rock, James 
Hutchinson, R. D. Fox, Thos. Meherin, Wm. 
J. Landers. John Rock, president; R. D. 
Fox, vice-president; J. H. Heun, secretary: 
Thomas Meherin, treasurer. 

VA'ith ample means, wide experience and 
the services of John Rock, the veteran nur- 
sery man, as manager, it maybe confidently 
expected that 1,000 acres or more of this rich 
virgin soil will be devoted to propagating 
young trees, small fruits and vines, that 
shall be planted in valley and hillside to or- 
nament and beautify our homes, promoting 
health, wealth and happiness. Any one in- 
terested in fruit is cordially invited to take 
the C. P. R. R. at the foot of Market street, 
San Francisco, and one and a half hours' ride 
will give him a chance to inspect this great 
plant, by which eight passenger trains pass 
daily. The length of our article precludes us 
from giving a detailed de.scription of the or- 
chards and berry farms adjacent to Niles. 

If enterprises of this character have enlist- 
ed the best efforts of men of experience and 
large means to create a nucleus that shall 
make our sister States and the world pay a 
tribute to our own State, such men should 
receive the plaudits of a grateful people.
